So, it is not surprising that Brennecka’s team has now found a need to tweak the age formulas used for dating meteoritic material.
New data collected by secular researchers has confirmed what creation scientists discovered decades ago—geologists’ assumptions about radioactive decay are not always correct.
For a century, the radioactive decay of unstable elements into more stable ones has been used as a natural clock to estimate the age of earth materials.
that strong gravitational perturbations by the planets, especially Jupiter, can put meteoroids into Earth-crossing orbits.
Not all meteoroids need to have formed in this region, however, as there are a number of processes that can cause their orbits to migrate over long time periods.
For further discussion of the sources of meteorites and the processes by which they are brought to Earth, such as asteroids and comets are most likely to preserve evidence of events that took place in the early solar system.
There are at least two reasons to expect that this is the case.
The differing amounts of material that were found in separate samplings of the same meteorite were unexpected.
The current standard age assigned to the solar system of 4.6 billion years was determined by studying the Uranium-to-Lead decay systems in meteorites, which are assumed to have formed before the planets did.
First, when the solar system began to form, it was composed of gas and fine-grained dust.
