About Polonium Radiohalos

Dr. Robert Gentry Examines Radiohalo Specimens

What are Polonium Radiohalos?

Etched within Earth's granite foundation rocks are beautiful microspheres of coloration - halos - produced by the radioactive decay of primordial polonium, which is known to have only a fleeting existence. The way in which these polonium microspheres form quickly contradicts the evolutionary belief that granites formed slowly as hot magma cooled over millions of years. These halos provide unambiguous evidence of both an almost instantaneous creation of granites and the young age of the earth.

An Analogy

A speck of polonium in molten rock can be compared to an Alka-Seltzer dropped into a glass of water. The beginning of efferescence is equated to the moment that polonium atoms began to emit radioactive particles. In molten rock the traces of those radioactive particles would disappear as quickly as the Alka-Seltzer bubbles in water. But if the water were instantly frozen, the bubbles would be preserved. Likewise, polonium halos could have formed only if the rapidly "efferescing " specks of polonium had been instantly encased in solid rock. An exceedingly large number of polonium halos are embedded in granites around the world.

Frozen in Time

Just as frozen Alka-Seltzer bubbles would be clear evidence of the quick-freezing of the water, so are these many polonium halos undeniable evidence that a sea of primordial matter quickly "froze" into solid granite. The occurrence of these polonium halos, then, distinctly implies that our earth was formed in a very short time, in complete harmony with the biblical record of creation.


About Earth Science Associates

Multiple Halos

Earth Science Associates (ESA) conducts scientific research, publishes books and produces videos showing evidence for the young age of the earth and its instant creation in support of the Bible's Genesis record of creation. Scientist Robert V. Gentry has shown that polonium halos, microspheres of coloration found in the earth's granite foundation rocks, are produced by radioactive decay of primordial polonium known to have a fleeting existence thus offering unrefuted evidence that directly contradicts the evolutionary belief that granite formed over millions of years from slowly cooling magma.


About Dr. Robert Gentry

Dr. Robert Gentry

In his early career, Robert V. Gentry served as a physicist (B.S., M.S.; University of Florida) in the nuclear/space defense industries and taught college/university math and physics. He then developed an absorbing interest in testing the conventional evolutionary model of Earth’s origin and age, and has dedicated his scientific career to finding answers that could only be obtained through years of investigating fossil traces of an extraordinary type of radioactivity inscribed in Earth’s basement rocks, the granites.

His research so far has resulted in authoring or co-authoring over twenty research papers in scientific publications, such as Science, Nature, Geophysical Research Letters, Annual Review of Nuclear Science, and Earth and Planetary Science Letters. Most of these reports were published during the thirteen years (1969-1982) he spent as a Visiting Scientist in the Chemistry Division of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, some of which detailed discovery of evidence of Earth’s rapid creation and its young age. In 1977 these discoveries led to an honorary D.Sc., and subsequently to his being called to testify in defense of the state’s creation position at the 1981 Arkansas creation/evolution trial. There he testified his discoveries disproved Earth’s evolutionary origin and instead affirmed the Genesis account of Earth’s six-day creation and young age.

His book, Creation's Tiny Mystery, recounts how ACLU evolutionist witnesses failed to refute his discovery of evidence of Earth’s instant creation, being forced to say it was only "a tiny mystery," which they hoped someday to solve. Silence concerning this continuing failure to overthrow this proof of creation has thus far been secured by the evolutionists censoring discussion of this topic from scientific journals for over two decades.

Even more blatant censorship of his most recent discoveries began in early 2001 when Los Alamos National Laboratory personnel deleted his ten scientific papers on cosmology and astrophysics from their U. S. government sponsored e-print archive, prior to their scheduled release on the Internet on the evenings of 2/28/01 and 3/5/01. Continued suppression of these papers, now by Cornell University, stems both from the resistance of evolutionists to the implications of his discovery that the universe possesses a nearby universal Center -- which overthrows big-bang cosmology with its crucial assumption of a no-center universe -- and from his discovery of GENESIS, a new astrophysical model of the cosmos which affirms that the literal six-day Genesis record includes the creation of the visible universe.

Dr. Gentry is a long-time member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Geophysical Union, Research Society of Sigma Xi, the American Physical Society, and the New York Academy of Sciences. For several years he has been listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in Science and Engineering.
