Radiometric dating a christian perspective

Following a short introduction, Woodmorappe's paper is divided into two main sections.In the first section he discusses Phanerozoic geochronology and in the second section he discusses Precambrian geochronology.I would like to first briefly mention three minor criticisms and one major criticism I have regarding Woodmorappe's paper as a whole.The first criticism is in regard to the format of this paper, which may be more the fault of the than John Woodmorappe, is that the references are all referred to by a number and are listed by these numbers rather than alphabetically.

The large spread of values for igneous and metamorphic rocks (especially of the Precambrian) may indicate artificial imposition of time-values upon these rocks.Once divested of all the time claims imposed upon it, the fossiliferous rock testifies to the Noahchian Deluge, and all life (fossil and extant) is then mutally contemporaneous as is demanded by a literal six (24 hr.) day Creation.While I would strongly disagree that discrediting radiometric dating would in any way support the occurrence of a geologically-recent global flood, I will restrict myself to addressing Woodmorappe's main thesis which he summarizes as follows (p.Also included in Woodmorappe's paper is a single massive data table (Table 1, p.103-113) containing over 350 of what are alleged to be anomalous radiometric dates with references to the primary literature.113), that anomalous dates are not reported in the scientific literature (p.
