The specific article written by Mr Williams was brief, a web version of an article he posted in The thesis of the article follows the usual YEC complaints of conventional absolute dating systems.

In systems younger than the mid-1960s, the bomb peak will not be present due to radioactive decay. In fact, the other 139 crystals show such a confusion of information that a statistician could only conclude that no sensible dates could be extracted from the data.Decay of uranium and thorium to helium provides a versatile chronometer for examining the timing and rates of a wide variety of events and processes in earth and planetary science.To test the hypothesis, researchers sought cases in which nuclear decay could be compared against some other natural phenomenon.Think of radioactive nuclei as a clock that ticks (i.e. The only way to demonstrate that nuclear processes “ticked” faster in the past was to compare their decay rates to another, more accurate clock.

As these substances are virtually inert in ground water, unaffected by ground-water chemistry and unaffected by contamination from most anthropogenic sources, He dating complements existing capabilities within the U. Geological Survey for dating of young ground water, such as, uses of chlorofluorocarbons and sulfur hexafluoride, and can be applied to dating water recharged since about 1965.
