Radiometric Dating Links

Compiled by Glen Kuban. Updated July, 2006

Radiometric dating uses the known decay rates of radioactive elements to calculate the age of rocks. These methods and others have lead most scientists to conclude that the Earth is approximately 4.6 billion years old. Most strict creationists, however, maintain that the earth is less than about 15,000 years old (some say less than 10,000 years old), and that radiometric dating methods are unreliable. The following links provide extensive evidence that radiometric dating methods are generally reliable and accurate, and largely in agreement with each other a number of other, independent dating methods.
