As someone who has studied radioactivity in detail, I have always been a bit amused by the assertion that radioactive dating is a precise way to determine the age of an object.This false notion is often promoted when radioactive dates are listed with utterly unrealistic error bars.(See ‘Radiometric dating’.) Once we realize that the dates assigned to the Causeway are not measured but just someone’s opinion, we can look at the evidence in a different light.And the evidence of the Causeway points to a large-scale watery catastrophe, much bigger than anything we see today. One indication is the cataclysmic size of the lava eruptions.It surged so rapidly that it did not have time to solidify before covering the land in deep, glowing pools of molten rock.Even though the lavas flowed into abundant water, the eruption was so large and rapid that the lavas were able to flow for huge distances.It's also not a problem that geologists say that the sedimentary layers of rock took millions of years to form, since there are many evidences that the great geological formations on earth were formed rapidly and catastropically, as in the Biblical flood or subsequent catastrophic events.For example, there is too little erosion between the geological layers for them to have taken millions of years to form.
This teaching of long ages for life on earth has led some Christians to question and even abandon their belief in the Bible, since a literal reading of Scripture is not consistent with the belief that life has existed on earth for millions of years.Columns are 40–50 cm (15–20 in) across and create a fascinating honeycomb pattern. Geologists quote ages of millions of years because they make wrong assumptions.They don’t believe Noah’s Flood was real, so they ignore its catastrophic effects.If those rocks really have been sitting around on the moon for billions of years, I suspect that the the wide range of physical and chemical processes which occurred over that time period had a much more profound effect on the uncertainty of the age determination.This is best illustrated by the radioactive age of a sample of diamonds from Zaire.
