It has become increasingly clear that these radiometric dating techniques agree with each other and as a whole, present a coherent picture in which the Earth was created a very long time ago.Further evidence comes from the complete agreement between radiometric dates and other dating methods such as counting tree rings or glacier ice core layers.Most processes that we are familiar with are like sand in an hourglass.In exponential decay the amount of material decreases by half during each half-life.However, some Christians suggest that the geologic dating techniques are unreliable, that they are wrongly interpreted, or that they are confusing at best.Unfortunately, much of the literature available to Christians has been either inaccurate or difficult to understand, so that confusion over dating techniques continues.

Many are also unaware that Bible-believing Christians are among those actively involved in radiometric dating.

When the glass is turned over, sand runs from the top to the bottom.

Radioactive atoms are like individual grains of sand--radioactive decays are like the falling of grains from the top to the bottom of the glass.

Most of the elements in nature are stable and do not change.

However, some elements are not completely stable in their natural state.
