A Christian apologetics ministry dedicated to demonstrating the historical reliability of the Bible through archaeological and biblical research.
Radioactive isotopes are commonly portrayed as providing rock-solid evidence that the earth is billions of years old. Since such isotopes are thought to decay at consistent rates over time, the assumption is that simple measurements can lead to reliable ages. But new discoveries of rate fluctuations continue to challenge the reliability of radioisotope decay rates in general—and thus, the reliability of vast ages seemingly derived from radioisotope dating.

please explain in detail how rate fluctuations in radio isotope dating, can vary so much (eg, tens if not hundreds of thousands of years [if not millions of years] that other sciences, like geology] report that a flood, may have occurred.i appreciate your help (my science is not advanced level, just basic college-reading grade)
