Interestingly, using these sorts of ratios, one piece of moon rock dated as being 8.2 billion years old, to the amazement of the dating laboratory involved.

As far as stars are concerned, the Th/Nd ratio has been shown to be unchanged no matter what the age of the star is, which leads one to two conclusions.

Also, many rock units have been radioisotopically dated by only one or two radioisotopic systems, whereas we need to see if there are patterns in the results when rock units are 'dated' by all the major radioisotopic systems.

This also made for rapid heating of the earth interior (cool to start with).

Furthermore, there is evidence that the main radioactive elements were concentrated in a layer low in the mantle and came to the surface progressively after that.

This didn't last very long on a geological time scale, but the reaction results are very informative. Maurette, "The Oklo Reactor", Annual Reviews of Nuclear and Particle Science, 26,319 (1976) and A.

In particular, because of the way mass and energy are related, they could not have been at variance from our present day observations by any more than one part in ten million; otherwise the natural reactor would not have functioned. I Shylakhter, Nature, 264, 340 (1976) and F Dyson and T Damour, "The Oklo Bound on the time variation of the fine-structure constant revisited", Nuclear Physics, B480 37 (1997) Any significant variation in the relationship between mass and energy - the only variables that determine the speed of light in Einstein's famous e = m c squared - would have to be dated prior to 1.8 billion years ago, based on this witness from God's creation. My reply on those pages was sparked by a question about Oklo and other ore bodies by Bob Gentry.

This then suggests that the majority of the elements were formed at the beginning rather than through a series of supernovae explosions.

Given that point, it seems that the stars must be basically the same age.

The objective of the RATE research is to develop a model which is consistent with the radioisotopic data and with the Biblical record of a recent creation and catastrophic global flood.

The need to spend money on analyses of rock samples by reputable laboratories is to ensure that we have data to model that are free of any bias that may have occurred in laboratories where the 'target ages' are known before the analyses.

Isn’t dendrochronology accurate for checking radiocarbon dating?
