This results in a constant yearly increase in the distance between the Earth and Moon." "One cannot extrapolate the present 4 cm/year separation rate back into history.

It has that value today, but was more rapid in the past because of tidal effects.

Helium is a byproduct of the radioactive decay of uranium-238 as it decays into various different elements into its final stable element: lead 206.

If we use the same assumptions that radiometric dating experts make: i.e.

no initial helium in the earth's early atmosphere, a constant decay rate, and that nothing has occurred to add to or take away the helium -- then the earth's atmosphere is at most 1.76 million years old.

As time passes, the amount of helium in the atmosphere increases.

Scientists have estimated the amount of uranium in the earth's crustal rocks.

In fact, the separation rate depends on the distance to the 6Note: Even though the maximum age obtained from this method is more than 10,000 years, it is nevertheless much younger than the alleged 4.5 billion year age for the Earth-Moon system proposed by evolutionists.

Note also that nobody knows how the Moon got to be in its present orbit.

It also strongly suggests that something happened around 4,500 to Note also that it is possible for trees to produce more than one growth ring per year, which would shorten the above estimated ages of these trees.

Also, with regard to fossil tree rings, the author has been unable to find any documented instances of fossil trees having more than about 1500 rings.

For as time goes by, the oil should seep into tiny pores in the surrounding rock, and, over time, reduce the pressure. Perhaps because our oil deposits were created as a result of Noah's Flood only about 4600 years ago?
