Double standards on dating

Groan! The latest Christadelphian Magazine (Issue 1870 April 2020 page 167) has an article criticising radiometric dating as unreliable.  Yet in Vol 1865 (2019) the magazine trumpeted the finding that tin ingots in the Middle East came from Britain.  This validated Christadelphian readings of the Old Testament.  Hoorah us.  Yet unmentioned was that the proof for the tin coming from Britain was radiometric dating and old earth geology (see here for a review of that little airbrush).  Now we are back throwing stones at the very science which proved a pet theory of our community.  Wow.  Consistency anyone?  PS the argument against the dating is pretty poor – follow the links quoted in the article to assess whether the author has fairly represented his material.
