Abstract:

"In 1997 an eight year research initiative to investigate this very issue was launched. Entitled Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth (RATE), and staffed by experts qualified in relevant fields, it attempted to test the validity of radioisotope dating of rocks, source of the main evidence for deep time. ... The RATE book published after the first three years revealed the questionable state of the radioisotope dating methods and proposed experiments which could shed some light in the darkness. The next five years were occupied by conducting those experiments and analyzing the data and theory. This books presents the results. ... Does this work prove the young earth model? Of course not, as no historical reconstruction can be fully proved. But it does show that of the two viewpoints the young earth model is better supported and more consistent with all the radioisotope evidence."--Prologue, v.2, pages xxvi, xxviii.
