The committee first me in December 1923 and began its annual reports published publicly.
Radiometric dating is the technique used to date materials such as rocks, fossils and other geologic formations by observation and comparison of the abundance of radioactive isotopes and their decay process’s using known or theoretical decay rates. All matter is created with known chemical elements, each with its own atomic number which indicates the number of protons (positive particle) in its nucleus.
It actually decays 1/8 to argon, the other 7/8 to calcium.
Argon makes up about .0000036% of the earths crust.
We could infer that magma is about 1/40 potassium and about 1/400,000 K-40.
After 570 million years, it is estimate that about 26% of this potassium would have decayed and about 1/3 as much decay product would be K40.
Wrong and mismatch dates are continually found in every material that is dated.This transformation is typically accomplished through radioactive decay, which means that a particle may loose or gain an electron, or experience spontaneous fission.Evolutionists believe most radioisotopes had to be created by supernovas that lead to the formation of the space dust that eventually tumbled together forming larger clumps that smashed together forming the earth.Thus a rock will have 1/9,600,000 of an average concentration of potassium to argon, that is of course, if it really is 570 million years old.This is roughly 1/10Millionth the mass of the rock, an extremely minute percentage.
