(The number after the ± symbol refers to the error margins in the “age” determination so that 1,103±66 million years means that the age is between 1,037 and 1,169 million years.) So it would seem!

However, a closer examination of the results from all such studies reveals the fallacies of the radioactive dating methods.

Thus, radioactive decay of samarium was faster than that of rubidium, which was faster than that of potassium.

Such accelerated radioactive decay rates would mean that these basalt lavas may instead be only thousands of years old.

Certainly the radioactive dating methods simply cannot be trusted.

The position of the Cardenas Basalt lava flows in the overall succession of rock layers in Grand Canyon can be seen in the generalized geologic “block” diagram of Grand Canyon .

It’s even possible the American Indians may have witnessed some of this awesome spectacle.1 Yet, when applying the widely accepted assumptions of secular geologists, these basalt flows yield potassium-argon model ages of around 500,000–1 million years.
