Helium is a byproduct of the radioactive decay of uranium-238 as it decays into various different elements into its final stable element: lead 206.

As it decays, the helium not only accumulates in the rocks themselves, but also escapes from them and accumulates in the earth's atmosphere.

And only 11,200,000 years ago the sun would have physically touched the earth.

When oil wells are drilled, the oil is almost always found to be under great pressure.

This presents a problem for those who claim "millions of years" for the age of oil, simply because rocks are porous.

The following clocks point to a young earth, solar system, and universe.

Taken together, they suggest that the earth is quite young -- probably less than 10,000 years old.

From this they estimate the amount of helium that should be produced, and from these they can calculate how much helium is being added to the atmosphere over a given amount of time.

They also know how much helium is currently in the atmosphere.It also strongly suggests that something happened around 4,500 to Note also that it is possible for trees to produce more than one growth ring per year, which would shorten the above estimated ages of these trees.Also, with regard to fossil tree rings, the author has been unable to find any documented instances of fossil trees having more than about 1500 rings.Clocks may be used to estimate how long a process has been taking place.All clocks (including radiometric ones) require the use of at least three assumptions.In fact, such young earth indicators are in the majority.
