Does it not tell us that the oldest rocks are 4.5 billion years old?
Radioactive dating uses minerals like uranium (decaying into lead) and potassium (decaying into argon-40 gas).
Decay rates will vary if, for instance, cosmic radiation varies.
Cosmic radiation almost certainly has varied through variations in the earth's magnetic field, and also through Supernova explosions in nearby stars. Frederick Juneman commented in 1972 that the effects of such super-explosions must reset our atomic clocks, knocking our radioactive dating measurements "into a cocked hat." The third assumption regards measuring the "decay-produced" (or "daughter") lead or argon.
For any faithful evolutionist, this is not only embarrassing, it is impossible.
Similar objections apply to the Rubidium-Strontium dating method as to Potassium-Argon.
Furthermore, the dating method rests on another assumption, namely that the ratio of argon-40 (daughter) to argon-36 (non-radiogenic) has always been 300 to 1.
Space probes have shown that the ratio on Mars is very different, with much less argon-36; while the ratio on Venus is very different the other way.
He regards this as evidence of extinction of life by the Deluge.
