Note that young-Earthers cannot accuse us of selective use of data -- the above table includes a significant fraction of all meteorites on which isotope dating has been attempted. 286) , less than 100 meteorites have been subjected to isotope dating, and of those about 70 yield ages with low analytical error.
Further, the oldest age determinations of individual meteorites generally give concordant ages by multiple radiometric means, or multiple tests across different samples.
For example: Also note that the meteorite ages (both when dated mainly by Rb-Sr dating in groups, and by multiple means individually) are in exact agreement with the solar system "model lead age" produced earlier.
Young-Earthers have several methods which they claim to give "upper limits" to the age of the Earth, much lower than the age calculated above (usually in the thousands of years).
However, the test for these assumptions is the plot of the data itself.
Over time, the amounts of Pb-206 and Pb-207 will change in some samples, as these isotopes are decay end-products of uranium decay (U-238 decays to Pb-206, and U-235 decays to Pb-207).
This causes the data points to separate from each other.
And from the slope of the line we can compute the amount of time which has passed since the pool of matter became separated into individual objects.
See the Isochron Dating FAQ or Faure (1986, chapter 18) for technical detail.
For example, Henry Morris says: He lead to similar results, i.e., a rate virtually identical to the estimated production flux.
