There many different audiences who would benefit from reading this book: Young Earth Creationists who are interested in scientific facts with which to bolster their faith and ability to defend God's Word. Those of a technical mind with an interest in geology, especially geology from a catastrophic viewpoint (Noah's Flood). And finally, anyone who believes the Earth has been PROVEN to be billions of years old by radiometric dating. Can radiometric dating be trusted on rocks when we don't know the age of the rock beforehand?

This book is the summary of 8 years of work by the group called Radioisotopes And The age of the Earth (RATE). Just one example involves Andesite samples from New Zealand known to be 25-50 years old. Radioisotope dates come back anywhere between 270,000 years for Potassium-Argon to 3.9 BILLION years for Lead-Lead dating.

Other topics covered are Carbon-14, Radiohalos, Fission tracks, Helium retention in zirzons, theories of nuclear decay, and a statistical survey of the Genesis creation account revealing whether it was written as historical, or poetry. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0890514410, Paperback)

• Destroys one of the major barriers for faith seekers: alleged long ages for the earth • Provides scientifi c evidences that correlate to biblical history and time-lines • Can be used as an apologetic; many shun the faith because of alleged scientifi c “facts” • A sensational answer to “old earth” critics • A powerful book written in plain language This long-awaited book shatters the famed dating methods employed by evolutionists to cast doubt on the veracity of the Bible and its chronology of earth history. Radiometric dating is one of the linchpins of evolutionary education today. By dating the soil in which fossils are found to very long ages, evolutionists undermine faith in Genesis as the true documentary of the history of the universe. When people are told that a dinosaur bone has been determined to be tens of millions of years old, that obviously doesn’t square with the biblical record of man being created on day 6 with the land animals. But DeYoung now demonstrates that Christians no longer have to puzzle over this glaring contradiction. A must-have for the serious Bible student, Thousands . . . not Billions will bolster the faith of many.
