This is a status report on the RATE (Radioisotopes and the age of the earth)
project. The book discusses isochrons and other experimental results within
a creationist young earth time frame. Models for accelerated decay during
creation week, the Fall, or during the Genesis Flood are prime hypotheses
for explaining radioisotope data. The geophysical and geological histories
of rocks and magma sources of igneous rocks must also be considered.
