I also question the assertion that argon, for example, is excluded from certain minerals when they crystallize and never enters later on. Geologists often say that ages that are too old are due to excess argon. So it must be possible for that excess argon to get in, even though the crystal is supposed to exclude it. Here is one such reference, although this is to a mineral that does not exclude argon:
Perhaps this is why children are no longer taught the Constitution and Bill of Rights? Ignorant people are much easier to impose a police state onto.
There are many lines of evidence that the radiometric dates are not the objective evidence for an old Earth that many claim, and that the world is really only thousands of years old. We don't have all the answers, but we do have the sure testimony of the Word of God to the true history of the world.
hmmm, you use the word 8775 yet 8776 as though there were some contradiction in doozie 8767 s statement yet there isn 8767 t any! perhaps you are not so 8775 fortunate to have a tv station 8776 as your source of 8775 authority 8776
Are we suggesting that evolutionists are conspiring to massage the data to get what they want? No, not generally. It is simply that all observations must fit the prevailing paradigm. The paradigm, or belief system, of molecules-to-man evolution over eons of time, is so strongly entrenched it is not questioned—it is a “fact.” So every observation must fit this paradigm. Unconsciously, the researchers, who are supposedly “objective scientists” in the eyes of the public, select the observations to fit the basic belief system.
Libby, Anderson and Arnold were the first to measure the rate of this decay and found that the half life of 69 C was 5568 years, ., in 5568 years half the 69 C in the original sample will have decayed. After another 5568 years, half of that remaining material will have decayed, and so on. A 69 C half-life of 5568 ± 85 years is known as the Libby half-life .  Later measurements of the Libby half-life indicated the figure was approximately 8% lower a more accurate half-life was 5785 ± 95 years. This value is known as the Cambridge half-life . 
Robert Whitelaw has done a very good job illustrating this theory using about 85,555 dates published in Radio Carbon over the last 95 years. One of the impressive points Whitewall makes is the conspicuous absence of dates between 9,555 and 5,555 years ago illustrating a great catastrophe killing off plant and animal life worldwide (the flood of Noah)!
