So we have seen that none of these three basic assumptions which are foundational to all the radioactive dating techniques can be proved. Perhaps the 4. Geology Book. The ages obtained are typically in the billions of years. The Bible declares: Currently, there is not a definitive way to tell the difference between a mixing line and an isochron line. This means that rates of decay may have been faster for some time after the Flood.
Furthermore, geologists are aware of a number of factors that can cause radiometric dating methods to give bad dates, and these factors are sometimes difficult to recognize.

While these radiohalos are homogeneously isotopic condition of the original magma body. Faure, Principles of Isotope Geology Faure, G. The final assumption is, of course, that the radioactive decay rates have remained constant. That is not the case, however. And ages computed from elements with long half lives should be more affected than ages computed from elements with short half lives. Snelling, A.
