Radiometric Dating Errors answers Brent Dalrymple’s books The Age of the Earth and Ancient Earth, Ancient Skies that claim radiometric dating consistently gives accurate dates of 3.5 billion years for the Earth’s oldest rocks, and 4.5 billion years for Lunar material, and meteorites. Geology journals however regularly give absurd and meaningless dates much more than 4.5 billion years old for all three groups.


The author has compiled a list of over 20,000 such dates with ages up to 900 billion years old. The author has a list of over one thousand dates older [13 billion years] than the Big Bang. Equally absurd are rocks that have formed in the past with impossible future ages. The author has a list of over two thousand dates up to 45,000 trillion years.


Historic volcanic eruptions [1600 AD to 2021 AD] have been consistently dated to be millions or even billions of years old. If radiometric dating were accurate, it should give low or zero ages. Some volcanic glass only two months old (1/6 of a year) was dated to be 4,997 million years old. The dates were 30 billion times in error.



Paul Nethercott has an associate diploma of computer programming from Mount Gravatt Technical College. He spent four years [2010-2014] researching radiometric dating at James Cook University in Townsville, Queensland and seven more years [2014-2021] at the University of the Sunshine Coast. He has authored multiple articles on radiometric dating and the Bible. He has also written many articles about the Bible and astrophysics. He has written numerous articles about Bible doctrines and apologetics. He has been a creationist and Bible believer since 1984. He is single and lives in the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
