collected at the PbSe sites, where they decayed and formed 210Po halos. In contrast, the far more rapidly decaying atoms of 214Po and 218Po - with respective half-lives of 164 microseconds and 3 minutes - largely decayed away before they were collected at these same sites. This is the reason for the absence of 214Po and 218Po halos in coalified wood. That these latter two halo types failed to form naturally under the very best conditions of high U-daughter concentrations - coupled with rapid transport and ideal collecting sites - effectively removes any scientific basis for believing they could have formed by some natural process in U-poor granite. This conclusion is addtionally confirmed by the fact that primordial Po halos in granites are uniquely distinguished from secondary 21 Creationism evidence, creationism evidence,theory of creation,creation science,
Po halos in coalified wood by the distinctly different 206Pb:207Pb ratios. The latter unambiguously reflects an origin from U-decay products whereas the former can be traced to the decay of primordial polonium. The scientific laboratory evidence is clear and unequivocal: primordial polonium halos do exist in Earth's foundation rocks, the granites. Biblically this is exactly what we expect because their discovery in these rocks fits with the precise description of the rocks God created in the beginning. 'In the beginning, LORD, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands' (Heb. 1:10). Creationism evidence
Possibly Wise's difficulty in accepting the Po-halo evidence for creation can be traced to how he interprets earth history.9 The abstract of his talk at the First International Conference on Creationism (1986) contains the following statement: 'Geologists commonly use only three dating methods. Creationists commonly claim each of these techniques is invalid. Carefully considered, each technique has difficulties, but none of them can be considered faulty enough to be invalid.'9 This position has enormous hidden implications that need to be exposed. To say that creationists must show why dating techniques are invalid actually presupposes their validity; this in turn presupposes the validity of the evolutionary time scale. All this is fallacious reasoning. In fact dating techniques don't date anything.
A 'radioactive date' is in reality only an inference obtained by interpreting the ratio of the parent and daughter isotopes using the assumption of uniform radioactive decay. It is indeed unfortunate that some creationists have accepted this critical assumption when in fact the proven existence of primordial Po halos in Earth's foundation rocks effectively disproves the entire uniformitarian principle upon which all those dating techniques are based.6,10-12 Despite this overwhelming evidence of fiat creation, in his section 4 Wise ventures from the scientific realm and joins others in wondering why, if God chose to leave His fingerprints, He didn't leave other Po halo types to prove instant creation. Wise says this absence seems strange to him. There are many mysteries in the natural world, but I suggest this is not one of them.

Consider the following. Evolutionary geology holds that granites with Po halos formed naturally. But in 1979, I claimed this granite-Po-halo combination was a miracle of God's creation, impossible to reproduce by any natural methods, and challenged the scientific community to disprove it by first synthesizing a hand-size piece of granite and then producing a 218Po in it.10 I repeated this challenge at the 1981 Arkansas creation trial,6 again at the widely-attended 1982 AAAS symposium, `
Evolutionists Confront Creationists,11 and since then at a number of university-wide presentations, first at the University of Tennessee in 1987, followed by Stetson University in 1989, Clemson University in 1991, East Carolina University in 1993, Cornell University in 1996, and North Carolina State University in 1997. There has been a deafening silence to all these challenges.6 (continued....)
