So-called science alleges that the earth is about 4.6 billion years old. The claim is that radiometric dating methods all support this age of the earth and the solar system and as a result the time line derived from the Bible, of only about 6000 years, must be wrong. Dr Jim Mason presents some compelling arguments to answer the title question. He covers radiometric dating techniques, including the one that most people are familiar with, carbon-14. He shows that the three primary assumptions in all those methods cannot be relied upon to be correct. Rocks of known age, by eye-witness accounts of their formation in the case of solidification of volcanic lava, are incorrectly dated by various radiometric decay chains. So, why would you trust the same methods to date rocks of unknown age?

Creation Ministries International (CMI) undertook a major new offensive to take even more ground in the battle to proclaim the truth of the Bible. The aim was to simply and concisely expose evolution’s fatal weaknesses.
It culminated in 2014 with the completion of a milestone book, and a 96-minute DVD documentary, both called Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels.
The Achilles’ heels of evolution are often in the very areas widely considered to be impregnable strongholds of this belief system. These areas are the topics systematically covered in both the book and the documentary. They are:
- Natural Selection
- Genetics and DNA
- The Origin of Life
- The Fossil Record
- The Geologic Record
- Radiometric Dating
- Ethics and Morality
We believe evolution theory has no answer to these weaknesses, once properly explained and understood. The book is like no other work that we are aware of, in that it is authored exclusively by nine Ph.D. scientists, including myself, to produce a coordinated, coherent, powerful argument. The documentary involves even more PhD scientists, 15 in all, and features striking footage and brilliant computer animations. All of these scientists received their doctorates from similar, secular universities as their evolutionary counterparts. Each is a specialist in various relevant fields.
Review by Examiner.com
This has been a long time in the making! This powerful book exposes the fatal flaws of evolutionary thinking. Like no other work that I am aware of, it is authored by nine Ph.D. scientists, including myself, to produce a coordinated, coherent, powerful argument. All of the authors received their doctorates from similar secular universities as their evolutionary counterparts. Each is a specialist in a field relevant to the subject written about: Natural selection, origin of life, geology, genetics, radiometric dating, the fossil record, cosmology, and ethics.
