Scientists use a technique called radiometric dating to estimate the ages of rocks, fossils, and the earth.Many people have been led to believe that radiometric dating methods have proved the earth to be billions of years old.
Since the Bible is the inspired Word of God, we should examine the validity of the standard interpretation of All radiometric dating methods use scientific procedures in the present to interpret what has happened in the past. Can carbon-14 dating help solve the mystery of which worldview is more accurate?
The variation is certainly partially the result of a change in the cosmic ray production rate of radiocarbon.
The cosmic-ray flux, and hence the production rate of C-14, is a function not only of the solar activity but also of the magnetic dipole moment of the Earth.4Though complex, this history of the earth’s magnetic field agrees with Barnes’ basic hypothesis, that the field has always freely decayed....
God knows just what He meant to say, and His understanding of science is infallible, whereas ours is fallible.
So we should never think it necessary to modify His Word.
