Before we get into the details of how radiometric dating methods are used, we need to review some preliminary concepts from chemistry.
Recall that atoms are the basic building blocks of matter.
Radiometric dating, as with any other experimental discipline, is subject to a variety of errors, ranging from human error to rare anomalies resulting from highly unusual natural circumstances.
But while errors and anomalies can occur, the burden of proof is not on scientists to fully account for each and every error.
A 2010 Gallup poll found 40% of Americans believe that “God created humans in their present form within the last 10,000 years”.
A 2009 poll found 39% agreed that “God created the universe, the earth, the sun, moon, stars, plants, animals and the first two people within the past 10,000 years”.
Many people have been led to believe that radiometric dating methods have proved the earth to be billions of years old.
This has caused many in the church to reevaluate the biblical creation account, specifically the meaning of the word “day” in Genesis 1.

As biologist Kenneth Miller observed: “The consistency of [radiometric] data …
Scientists use a technique called radiometric dating to estimate the ages of rocks, fossils, and the earth.
Radiometric dating is self-checking, because the data (after certain preliminary calculations are made) are fitted to a straight line (called an isochron) by means of standard linear regression methods of statistics.
The slope of the line determines the age of the rock, and the closeness of fit is a measure of the statistical reliability of this conclusion.
a great majority of the time” that Earth is billions of years old.
