Hi all,

When I read YEC articles (and some posts here) about the radiometry, I can’t help feeling I read another conspiracy theory.

Indeed, if the radiometry (which exists from the days of Rutherford) is that provably incorrect, then what, except from a worldwide conspiracy, can explain its wide usage?

I am a computer scientist and sometimes I notice a lot of stupid and baseless assumptions in my field, but there is little doubt that the majority of the computer scientists know what they are doing. I have no reason to assume that the situation is dramatically different in other sciences. Unless there is a worldwide conspiracy of the Satan-driven evolutionists against the Bible.

So I would like to ask those who claim the radiometry methods are incorrect, what is their explanation of the situation.
