Radiometric dating of the earth
Radiometric dating regularly gives different ages for the same object based on the method used.For example check the variance in ages from samples tested by two different methods.
So when the two contradict – as they do with the age of the universe and the earth – many abandon the faith and reject the Genesis account because current science tells them that the universe and the earth is billions of years old, and disregard the biblical account – which indicates an age of about 6,000 years.
They know that radiometric dating is not, and in fact cannot be the precise science they want you to believe it is.
Consider: In conventional interpretation of K-Ar (Potassium-Argon) age it is common to discard ages which are substantially too high or too low compared with the rest of the group or with other available data such as the geological time scale.
By “objective, hard science” I mean science that is measurable, repeatable, predictable, consistent and accurate.
For instance I would could consider the physics of flight a “hard science.” Here’s how those terms apply to the performance of an aircraft: Measurable: Flight parameters such as take off and landing distance, fuel burn, etc. Repeatable: Given the same initial conditions, those parameters should be the same regardless of who performs the operations.
