Unfortunately, the age cannot be computed directly from material that is solely from the Earth.
There is evidence that energy from the Earth's accumulation caused the surface to be molten.
Many elements have more than one isotope, also, most elements have only one stable isotope, meaning, they break down. They break down by emitting particles and energy, this is called radiation.
and when they break down, they do so at a known rate called a half-life.
The water leaking out the sides of the barrel represents the loss (mainly by radioactive decay) of the atmosphere's supply of carbon-14.The following material has been taken from a sheet entitled Several Faulty Assumptions Are Used in all Radiometric Dating Methods.Carbon 14 is used for this example:, which was put out by Dr. is presently only 1/3 of the way to an equilibrium value which will be reached in 30,000 years. Knowing how faulty creationist "facts" can be, let's do a little research of our own.The number is from the estimated atomic mass of each isotope. Electrons have a much tinier mass, and have a negligible effect on the the atomic mass of each isotope.H1 has 1 proton and 1 electron, atomic mass=1, H2 1 proton, 1electron and 1 nuetron, atomic mass=2 and so on.
