Age of the Earth: Helium in Granite Minerals Shows the Earth is Young

About the event
Uranium atoms make helium atoms as they decay to lead. The RATE project found that such helium produced in radioactive zircon crystals in deep, hot granitic rock from New Mexico has not had time to escape, even though helium leaks out of most minerals fast. Though the zircons contain 1.5 billion years’ worth of nuclear decay products, we measured high rates of helium leakage from them. The rates show that the helium has been leaking for only 6,000 years (± 2000 years). This is not only evidence for the youth of the earth, but also for an episode of greatly speeded-up decay rates during the year of the Genesis flood, only 4500 years ago. That shrinks the “millions of years” (of radioactivity dates) down to months (during the year of the flood). Uniformitarians have tried to discredit these data for two decades, but we have answered every one, and they have not produced any experiments or observations contradicting the data.
