which rocks are older than which rocks) is obvious due to either layering or distance from a sea-floor spreading ridge.

The decrease measured in the past few hundred years, therefore, is nothing more than a downward trend as part of an overall fluctuation, and has no implication for the age of the Earth.”6 Helium in Radioactive Rocks During the radioactive decay of uranium and thorium contained in rocks, lots of helium is produced.

Tiscareno again:“[…] The evidence shows that the magnetic field has fluctuated back and forth in strength as well as direction.

5 Rapidly Decaying Magnetic Field The earth is surrounded by a magnetic field that protects living things from solar radiation. That’s why scientists were surprised to discover that the field is quickly wearing down.

At the current rate, the field and thus the earth could be no older than 20,000 years old.

The earth’s record may not be perfect, and if it was, geologists could just go home, but we have enough evidence and understanding to have a very good grasp about on what the geological record says.

So again, no young earth evidence.3 Soft Tissue in Fossils Ask the average layperson how he or she knows that the earth is millions or billions of years old, and that person will probably mention the dinosaurs, which nearly everybody “knows” died off 65 million years ago. Mary Schweitzer, however, has given reason for all but committed evolutionists to question this assumption. Schweitzer’s discovery, as remarkable as it is, is also fully explained, and our previous thought about how long tissue can last has shifted since discovering this.

Because helium is the second lightest element and a noble gas—meaning it does not combine with other atoms—it readily diffuses (leaks) out and eventually escapes into the atmosphere.

Helium diffuses so rapidly that all the helium should have leaked out in less than 100,000 years. Talk Origins explains this rather perfectly in that helium diffusion is not a straightforward rate that applies universally; subsurface pressure and temperature affect just how quickly helium would leak out of these rocks.Creationists think you should see the layers of rock like those of a cake, all over the earth, and apparently if there is any bending, that is proof the earth is young. No one expects there to be an unbroken record of the earth as creationists are claiming must exist for the earth to be over 4 billion years old, so the claim they are making is very misleading from the start. Tiscareno again: Deposited layers can be later eroded away or destroyed in other ways, and drought can prevent layers from being deposited at all for long periods of time.However, the above statement is very misleading in that it insinuates that the geologic column is somehow a “figment of the evolutionist’s imagination.” The truth is that the geologic records all over the world are very well correlated with each other, not only with stratigraphy (i.e., which layer overlies which layer) and fossils, but with paleomagnetism, radiometric dating, and many other important factors, all of which fit together remarkably well.Earlier this week they told us about the common myths about creationism that I had a fun time dissecting as not myths at all, and now they have presented us with, So I would like to take a look at these 10 pieces of evidence and explain why they could not be further from evidence for something as silly as young earth creationism.1.Very Little Sediment on the Seafloor Due to Plate Tectonics, ocean floor is continuously created at mid-ocean ridges and subducted into the Earth’s mantle at ocean trenches.This process moves at about an inch or two per year, so the average age of the ocean floor is in fact a few tens of millions of years, and thus the result is completely consistent with old-Earth science.
