Potential Resource-Pages (for RADIOMETRIC DATING) to help people
who are asking "What does science say about the age of our world?"

This is a temporary page.  It's intended to be useful during the process of selecting useful pages for the Origins Questions website (*), but it will also be useful if you just want to learn about the topics.    {* If you want to be part of the "process of selecting" by evaluating pages and providing feedback, read the reviewer's page.}

Here are some VIEWING TIPS:
to improve your understanding,
read pages in both columns, left (young earth) and right (old earth);
if you use a
smaller font size, the two-column table will behave better in your browser;
italicized links are inside-the-page, non-italicized links open a new page in a new window;
AIG-linked is a non-AIG page linked to by AIG, AIG-YE-claim is in AIG's page for Young Age Evidence;
words in [square brackets] are my page-description (not their page-title) or my editorial comments;
titles in brown (on left side) were chosen by Ashby Camp for his links-page at TrueOrigins.org, and
titles in green & purple (on right side) are brief responses from Neyman & Isaak, as explained here.

Topics with Semi-Red Titles (and pages in topic preceded by "ē") are in the homepage for AGE-SCIENCE.
Topics with Green Titles (and pages with "ē") will (eventually but not yet) be in RADIOMETRIC DATING - Age of the Earth.

Within each section, pages are organized using multiple criteria:  SIZE (shorter pages are earlier) plus READABILITY and/or VISUAL APPEAL (better is earlier), QUALITY (based on my quick non-expert evaluations; better pages are earlier, but this is often trumped by other factors), SOURCE (for example, YE pages by ICR and AIG are usually early, since they're prominent YE organizations), and SUB-TOPIC or AUTHOR (by grouping these pages together).

more age-science:  There are similar two-column pages listing "potential resources" for Noah's Flood and Geology and Astronomy.

 
TOPIC-CATEGORIES in this page:
Overviews   miscellaneous   short-lived isotopes   RATE   —   Woodmorappe critiques   Inaccurate Dates   Faster Decay Rates   Radiometric & Geology   —   Carbon 14   K–Ar   Ar–Ar   Lu–Hf   U–Th–Pb   Isochron Method   Helium Diffusion   Fission Tracks   Polonium Halos

The current links-page for radiometric dating — underdeveloped and needing expansion— is RADIOMETRIC DATING: AGE OF THE EARTH & UNIVERSE.

 

 

 
This page is in a more "rough and incomplete" form than the other three potential-resource pages — for Noah's Flood, Geology, and Astronomy — so (as a reminder) it has a GRAY BACKGROUND.

zircons — helium diffusion

[this is part of RATE so it's discussed in that section]

TO-faq - Henke - this is #4 in a complex series of replies & counter-replies at the left, which I'll try to clarify;  in the heading and first paragraph, he links to #1 (several papers you can find at his link to "Humphreys 2003"), #2 (his original article, but he recommends reading #4), #3 (Humphrey-2005, a reply to #2), #5 (Humphrey, January 2006, a reply to #3), and #6 (Appendices C and D by Henke, July 2006)  http://talkorigins.org/faqs/helium/zircons.html
