Rocks form rapidly yet can "date" as old

How long to harden: There are common and easily understandable methods for quickly turning loose material into rock-hard stone, some of

Earth's magnetic field is decaying rapidly

Earth's Magnetic Field Decay: As summarized by University of Maryland geophysicist Daniel Lathrop, “In particular, over the last 150 years or so, the Earth’s magnetic field has declined in strength about ten percent, and continues to decline in strength [as is evident] every time people go and make new measurements.” Creationists point out that this rapid decay is not expected in such a brief snapshot in time if our planet were 4.6 billion years old.

Carbon 14 everywhere it's not supposed to be

Carbon 14 doesn't lie: yet 14C is everywhere it shouldn't be. Unless from a secondary source, like contamination or neutron capture (described below), anything millions of years old should have NO Carbon-14.
