Third, creationists ignore the evidence and deny that [X] exists altogether or assert that belief in a Young Earth is based on faith, not science. These ages weren't just made up — or, worse, accepted to "give evolution enough time".
When one of these minerals is heated, the trapped electrons are discharged and produce light, and that light can be measured and compared with the level of surrounding radiation to establish the amount of time that has passed since the material was last heated (and its trapped electrons were last released).For YEC to be true, each of these fields would have to be incorrect about almost everything.Some of these reported ages have indeed been revised based on new evidence (sometimes larger, sometimes smaller), but never to the orders of magnitude required by YEC.Thus, a tree's age can be found by counting the rings.Dendrochronology is the only method on this list that can date events precisely to a single year.
There are three standard creationist responses: First, creationists assert that current rates (Y) are different than past rates.
