Creationists would have you believe that what is true for one rock is true for all, and this is simply dishonest and misleading. Humphreys has invoked miracles in his findings when he cannot explain a phenomena and has refused to publish or submit any of his findings to a single peer-review journal, instead publishing them in his own books.
The Smithsonian Magazine claims that young-earth creationists have hijacked Dr. Schweitzer herself, a faithful Christian, believes the age of the tissue to be millions of years old, not thousands of years. Schweitzer’s findings, and using her name and she doesn’t even agree with them.4 Faint Sun Paradox Evidence now supports astronomers’ belief that the sun’s power comes from the fusion of hydrogen into helium deep in the sun’s core, but there is a huge problem.
The earth is surrounded by a magnetic field that protects living things from solar radiation. That’s why scientists were surprised to discover that the field is quickly wearing down.
At the current rate, the field and thus the earth could be no older than 20,000 years old.
Because helium is the second lightest element and a noble gas—meaning it does not combine with other atoms—it readily diffuses (leaks) out and eventually escapes into the atmosphere.
Helium diffuses so rapidly that all the helium should have leaked out in less than 100,000 years. Talk Origins explains this rather perfectly in that helium diffusion is not a straightforward rate that applies universally; subsurface pressure and temperature affect just how quickly helium would leak out of these rocks.
