10-Year-Old Rock Dated at 2 Million Years?!

36:3908 Nov, 2023

In 1980, Mount St. Helens (in Washington State, USA) erupted, blasting the top and side off the mountain.

Then, as volcanoes do, it began to rebuild. In 1992, samples of new volcanic rock—KNOWN to be only about 10 years old—were dated using standard radiometric dating techniques.

The results were eye-opening.

Radiometric dating is not all it’s cracked up to be! In fact, it’s fair to ask: “Can radiometric dates be trusted at all?”

Join geologist Dr Tas Walker for a discussion of the Mount St. Helens eruption and its aftermath, the fundamental flaws in radiometric dating methods, and the relevance of the age of the earth to people’s view of the world.
