Radiometric dating methods (C14, KAr, etc.) are far from accurate. They rely heavily upon uniformitarian assumptions. We have no hard proof that radioactive decay rates and atmospheric levels have remained the same since creation. Lava rock formations from Mt. Kilauea in Hawaii have been radiometrically dated at 22 million years old when local records prove the rocks in question were deposited by an eruption less than 200 years ago. Quite a margin of error! Geologists have dated rock samples from the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption in Washington at 350,000 years old by these same methods. Dates that are deemed as “too young” ( at least to evolutionists) are frequently discarded as aberrations. True science does not permit one to toss out results simply because they do not match biased preconceptions.

“Ancient” lava flows?
