Dr Baumgardner repeated this with six more alluvial diamonds from Namibia, and these had even more radiocarbon.The presence of radiocarbon in these diamonds where there should be none is thus sparkling evidence for a ‘young’ world, as the Bible records. Because this site and the information it contains is free, you might think so.

Recent research by a team of creation scientists known as the RATE (arth) group has demonstrated the unreliability of radiometric dating techniques.
Even the use of isochron dating, which is supposed to eliminate some initial condition assumptions, produces dates that are not reliable.
The Bible gives us a much more reliable history of the earth as it was recorded by God.
When someone mentions scientific dating methods, the first thing to come to mind for most people is carbon dating.
Some of the common isotope pairs used are K-Ar, Rb-Sr, Pb-Pb, and U-Pb.
Carbon-14 dating is another common technique, but it can only be used on carbon-containing things that were once alive.
Most scientists and many Christians believe that the radiometric dating methods prove that the earth is 4.5 billion years old.
The textbooks speak of the radiometric dating techniques, and the dates themselves, as factual information.
C at all if they really were over a billion years old, yet the radiocarbon lab reported that there was over 10 times the detection limit.
Thus they had a radiocarbon ‘age’ far less than a million years!
Some are found in these pipes, such as kimberlites, while other diamonds were liberated by water erosion and deposited elsewhere (called alluvial diamonds).
