One of the most detailed papers on the subject of radiometric dating is an article Titled “Radiometric Geochronology Reappraised", by John Woodmorappe, published in the Sept. 1979 issue of the Creation Research Society Quarterly. In this issue John Woodmorappe documents approximately 400 discordant dates which were obtained by radiometric methods.

- The Young Earth, John D. Morris, Ph.D., pp. 51-67. This is also one of the best books available on the subject of the earth's age.
- Grand Canyon: Monument to Catastrophe, pp. 111-131; This chapter discusses in detail how the isochron dating method works and gives strong evidence for questioning its credibility. This book is well referenced.
- "Radioactive dating method 'under fire'!" by Andrew A. Snelling, Ph.D., Creation Ex Nihilo, vol. 14 No. 2, pp. 43-47. This article gives a brief overview of radiometric dating and how it is supposed to work, and goes into a detailed discussion of the problems associated with the isochron method of dating.
- In The Minds of Men, by Ian T. Taylor, pp. 294-322. Mr. Taylor goes into much detail with regard to the Potassium/Argon (K/Ar) method of dating. This book is well referenced.
- Illustrated Origins Answer Book by Paul S. Taylor; 4th ed., pp. 12, 13, 61,62. This book is very well referenced.

- "Long Age Isotope Dating Short on Credibility," Creation Ex Nihilo Technical Journal, Vol. 6 (#1), 1992, pp. 2-5; this is an insightful article that deals with how the 4.6 billion year age of the earth was arrived at.
- "The Dating Game," In the Appendix of "Bones of Contention" by Marvin Lubenow, Baker Books, 1992, pp. 247-266. This is a well-documented account of how a 220 million year old "date" for the KBS tuff was rejected and massaged to an acceptable "date"of 1.9 million years old. It is an eye opening account of how the game is rigged so that evolution always wins.
