Helium or No Helium?

This is Ken Ham, and our popular Ark Encounter attraction is located in Northern Kentucky.

Evolutionists believe that radioactive decay in rocks takes millions of years. Now, creationists believe radioactive decay greatly sped up during creation week and then during Noah’s flood.

Which view is confirmed by the evidence?

Well, when certain radioactive elements decay, helium is released. This helium quickly escapes from rock crystals. So, if radioactive decay really takes millions of years, then most of the helium should be long gone. A group of creationist geologists tested this and found, yes, large amounts of helium in rock crystals!

Once again, the evidence directly confirms the biblical model and opposes the evolutionary one!
