Uranium decay dating

For example: Also note that the meteorite ages (both when dated mainly by Rb-Sr dating in groups, and by multiple means individually) are in exact agreement with the solar system "model lead age" produced earlier.Young-Earthers have several methods which they claim to give "upper limits" to the age of the Earth, much lower than the age calculated above (usually in the thousands of years).

This involves measurement of three isotopes of lead (Pb-206, Pb-207, and either Pb-208 or Pb-204).

he generally accepted age for the Earth and the rest of the solar system is about 4.55 billion years (plus or minus about 1%).

This value is derived from several different lines of evidence.

A young-Earther would object to all of the "assumptions" listed above.

However, the test for these assumptions is the plot of the data itself.

) and they are historically the ones posted to talk.origins more than any others.

The young-Earth argument goes something like this: helium-4 is created by radioactive decay (alpha particles are helium nuclei) and is constantly added to the atmosphere.

Note that young-Earthers cannot accuse us of selective use of data -- the above table includes a significant fraction of all meteorites on which isotope dating has been attempted. 286) , less than 100 meteorites have been subjected to isotope dating, and of those about 70 yield ages with low analytical error.

Further, the oldest age determinations of individual meteorites generally give concordant ages by multiple radiometric means, or multiple tests across different samples.

Those which appear the most frequently in talk.origins are reproduced below: Note that these aren't necessarily the "best" or most difficult to refute of young-Earth arguments.

However, they are quite popular in modern creation-"science" literature (even though they should not be!

(I believe this argument was originally put forth by Mormon young-Earther Melvin Cook, in a letter to the editor which was published in .) But helium can and does escape from the atmosphere, at rates calculated to be nearly identical to rates of production.

    As one study participant who had remarried expressed it, sex was “the icing on the cake. ” It’s also a misconception to assume that women 50 and up who are widows, divorcees, or are otherwise single have their sights set on remarrying, forming a long-term relationship, or even just dating again.

    Dec 28 – Flamur Daci, 28, an Albanian immigrant from Southend, was attacked at Tesco in Gravesend, Kent, in a brawl which continued in the nearby railway station. Five Albanian asylum seekers were identified as his killers – Edrin Hodaj, Gezim Ilgazi, Antest Dailani, Genjan Ilgazi and Ruduan Dailani. An inquest in July 2000 recorded a verdict of unlawful killing. Dec 25 – Pervinder Singh Rayatt, 19, from east London, was killed in Chinatown, central London at 4am.
