Fermiment radiometric dating
by John Ackerman Egyptian mythology parallels much of Vedic and Hindu mythology because both cultures observed the same long series of cosmic events.
In addition it provides more graphic images than do the Indian myths.
Accelerated decay is in direct opposition to the main assumption of radiometric dating within the evolutionary scientific establishment which is that the radioactive decay rates are constant with time.
If the decay rate has varied significantly over time then any date based on radioactive decay within the evolutionary context is worthless.
The problem with radiometric dating is, if the assumptions which must be used to date the object are wrong, the interpretation of the measurements will be wrong.
Usually the scientists doing the measurements are assuming they know, for example, how much C14, which is radioactive carbon, was in the organism when it died (C14 dating is used to determine the age of things that were once alive.) Where did that radioactive carbon come from?
Recent experiments commissioned by the RATE group indicate that "1.5 billion years" worth of nuclear decay have taken place, but in one or more short periods 4000 - 8000 years ago.

With the proper perspective, we will discover that biblical statements present no necessary contradictions to anything scientists have been able to demonstrate. How do you explain the results of radiometric dating which say the earth is billions of years old, and the Bible's account of creation? The age of the earth as presented in the Biblical account of creation, and the age of the earth as calculated using radiometric dating are vastly different (thousands of years compared to billions of years).
The key issue one must understand to explain this apparent contradiction is that scientists must use some assumptions in order to interpret the measurements radiometric dating techniques use when assigning an age to a rock. Well—IF no one had added to, or taken away any ice from the amount ( 1 lb.) you found in the 33 degree room, and IF no one had added to, or taken away any water from the amount (8 ozs.) you found in the 33 degree room, and IF the temperature in the 33 degree room was constantly 33 degrees the entire 12 hours—your calculation that the ice was put in the room 12 hours ago would be correct.
Those assumptions are: 1) the starting amount of the decaying radioactive material being measured, is known, and 2) the rate of decay of the radioactive material being measured is an absolute constant, and nothing can alter that rate. What assumptions did you have to use in order for your measurements and calculations to be interpreted correctly?
