documentary - Thousands...Not Billions.
Radioisotope dating has become the
standard method for estimating the age of the Earth. Yet, the millions
and billions of years estimated by this method conflicts with the
thousands of years that the Bible indicates to be the age of the Earth.
An eight-year research project designed to explore the claims of
radioisotope dating for an old earth and to offer a young-earth
alternative will be completed by the Institute for Creation Research and
the Creation Research Society in 2005. The RATE project has found
several major pieces of evidence that radioisotope dating is in error by
a factor of many orders of magnitude and rocks commonly thought to be
billions of years old may only be thousands of years old. This talk
summarizes the project and discusses its major findings.
