The Speed of Plate Tectonics

He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: his ways are everlasting.

(Habakkuk 3:6) KJV

The Pangaea super-continent broke up into tectonic plates and these moved into their current locations over the space of a century or so. How do we know? By studying paleomagnetism.

The Mainstream Science Math Defense

O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge—by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen.

(1 Timothy 6:20-21) NKJV

As simple and convenient the young Earth creation (YEC) variable rate of nuclear decay response to radiometric dating may be, it’s also an Achilles Heel.

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

(Ecclesiastes 1:9-10) KJV

Welcome to the 19th Century! It’s ironic that, even today, people will presume to disprove God by cobbling together some math based on Uniformitarianism ideals.

Nuclear Decay

“Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’

(Luke 19:24) NKJV

It’s impossible to prove that radioisotopes have always decayed at a constant rate throughout history, since the ability to detect and measure radioactive decay is only about 120 years old.

Radiometric Dating is Pseudoscience

O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so-called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.

(1 Timothy 6:20-21) KJV

Radiometric dating is an example of inductive reductive circular reasoning. It requires the assumption that nuclear decay rates are constant and an unwarranted application of the half-life rate law to nuclear decay.

  1. Nuclear decay rates,
  2. the half-life rate law.

Only Half a Life?

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

(John 10:10) NKJV

Ernest Rutherford realized that Darwin’s theory of evolution needed a sound experimental foundation. Unfortunately, evolution as conceived by Darwin is wishful thinking, and so a contrived foundation was the best that Rutherford could do.

Principle VIII – Nuclear Decay Rate isn’t Constant

A just weight and balance are the LORD’S: all the weights of the bag are his work.

(Proverbs 16:11) KJV

If the theory of evolution was the centerpiece of the popular science narrative of godless existence (SciPop), then radiometric dating was the pseudoscientific glue which held it together.

The Decay Constant isn’t Constant

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

(2 Timothy 4:3-4) NKJV

The Bible says that the Earth is about 6,000 years old, yet popular science (SciPop) is convinced that it’s dated rock samples and fossils up to 3.8 or so billion years old. How could this be?
