Radiometric dating animation

Then I found out that ICR was planning a major project on radiometric dating.

Biblical creationists have long realized that the millions and billions of years resulting from radiometric dating was one of our major challenges.

Similar to Larry Vardiman in his introduction to the RATE project at the 5 November conference, I saw that radiometric dating is the basis for upholding the hypotheses of evolution and the supposed old age of the earth.

If there are multiple particles produced during a single decay, as in beta decay, their relative angular distribution, or spin directions may not be isotropic.

The technical RATE books are not for new creationists or for someone with little background in geophysics or geochronology or nuclear physics.

They are in-depth studies, as one would expect for the results of a research project that challenges radiometric dating.My study certainly was not a waste of time, since the earth sciences are filled with the results of dating methods, which guide many uniformitarian ideas in the earth sciences.Besides, it helps me review the results of the RATE project.Alpha decay is one type of radioactive decay, in which an atomic nucleus emits an alpha particle, and thereby transforms (or "decays") into an atom with a mass number decreased by 4 and atomic number decreased by 2. A radioactive nucleus with zero spin can have no defined orientation, and hence emits the total momentum of its decay products isotropically (all directions and without bias). However, for a collection of atoms, the collection's expected decay rate is characterized in terms of their measured decay constants or half-lives. The half-lives of radioactive atoms have no known upper limit, spanning a time range of over 55 orders of magnitude, from nearly instantaneous to far longer than the age of the universe.Decay products from a nucleus with spin may be distributed non-isotropically with respect to that spin direction, either because of an external influence such as an electromagnetic field, or because the nucleus was produced in a dynamic process that constrained the direction of its spin.
