This compendium of material summarizes the work of the RATE group - a joint research effort that was conducted over several years by the Institute for Creation Research and the Creation Research Society.
The set includes 3 books and 1 DVD, which every creationist should have in their library and is offered at 40% SAVINGS off the retail price.
Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth Vol 1: A Young-Earth Creationist Research Initiative
by Larry Vardiman, Andrew A. Snelling, and Eugene F. Chaffin (editors)
Publisher: Institute for Creation Research and Creation Research Society. (2000)

Retail Price: $49.95
The RATE book is a definitive resource on radioactive dating for every scientist's library, whether evolutionist or creationist. It examines radioisotope theory, exposes its plaguing problems, and offers a better alternative.
This status report on the RATE (Radioisotopes and the age of the earth) project discusses isochrons and other experimental results within a creationist young earth time frame. Models for accelerated decay during creation week, the Fall, or during the Genesis Flood are prime hypotheses for explaining radioisotope data. The geophysical and geological histories of rocks and magma sources of igneous rocks must also be considered.

The age of the earth is an important issue in Christianity today. If the 6 day Genesis account is fallacious, then how can the rest of Scripture be relied upon? Radioisotopes and the Age of the Erath: Results of a Young-Earth Creationist Research Initiative addresses the issues raised by the first RATE technical book in 2000. The RATE team dared to ask tough questions and has discovered that radioactive dating methods and their results are not thorough, consistent or reliable. One of the “pillars” of old-earth evolution really supports the Scriptural account of “in the beginning.”
Thousands... Not Billions: Challenging an Icon of Evolution, Questioning the Age of the Earth
Book by Don DeYoung
250 page paperback
This long-awaited book shatters the famed dating methods employed by evolutionists to cast doubt on the veracity of the Bible and its chronology of earth history.
Radiometric dating is one of the linchpins of evolutionary education today. By dating the soil in which fossils are found to very long ages, evolutionists undermine faith in Genesis as the true documentary of the history of the universe. When people are told that a dinosaur bone has been determined to be tens of millions of years old, that obviously doesn’t square with the biblical record of man being created on day 6 with the land animals.
Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth: The Earth's Young After All
by Larry Vardiman
Radioisotope dating has become the standard method for estimating the age of the Earth. Yet, the millions and billions of years estimated by this method conflicts with the thousands of years that the Bible indicates to be the age of the Earth. An eight-year research project designed to explore the claims of radioisotope dating for an old earth and to offer a young-earth alternative will be completed by the Institute for Creation Research and the Creation Research Society in 2005. The RATE project has found several major pieces of evidence that radioisotope dating is in error by a factor of many orders of magnitude and rocks commonly thought to be billions of years old may only be thousands of years old. This talk summarizes the project and discusses its major findings.
