And today we know through lab experiments and natural disasters (such as the eruption of Mt. Helens) that major layering of rock strata can happen catastrophically in a short period of time.

This method is used only on metamorphic and igneous rocks – not sedimentary rocks (which are rocks laid down by water – and is where the fossils are primarily found).

The radio-dating calculations are based on a series of Assumptions: 1) The decay rate has not changed.

The resulting rock strata may harbor fossils from a particular habitat area or ecosystem, but do not represent a particular age or era.

Why else do we find marine fossils on the tops of all the major mountain ranges?

Also remember that modern disasters (on a smaller scale) like Mount St.

Helens and Southwest Pacific tsunamis produced large deposits of multi-layered strata in a matter of hours or days… Yes, we all have been inundated with teaching that rocks are dated in the millions and billions of years, but are they really? Do they really NEED to be millions or billions of years old?

A Summary of the Million Dollar RATE Research Project (Radioisotopes and the Age of The Earth) Introduction: Rocks and fossils do not come with dates on them.

In fact, the very concept of strata representing long ages does not come from the rock strata themselves.

An examination of sedimentary rocks worldwide shows a striking consistency with the unimaginably massive Flood that wiped out whole environments.
