Nor was there discussion about how well the experimental conditions that have been mentioned would have represented the situation within crystallizing magmas.

Uniformitarians assume magmas crystallized slowly over millions of years under conditions of thermodynamic equilibrium.

To make such a claim, one would need to know independently and unarguably just what the age of the Earth actually is.

I submit that there is no such independently and unarguably known age—unless one is prepared to accept the age that is derived from the Bible, that was provided to us by God, an eyewitness, and some reliable scribes.

Where the bottom part intersects the Concordia curve is said to be the ‘age’ of the metamorphic event.

However, this only works if there is one metamorphic event.

The technique does have the added advantage that if the ‘ages’ from both the 238U and 235U chains agree with each other, it adds support to the hypothesis that both chains have experienced the same effects during the formation and lifetime of the crystal. ’ The claim is that if a rock undergoes a metamorphic process then some of the U or Pb from the zircon would be lost, which means the ages would no longer be concordant.

A colleague, Dr Tas Walker, advises that, “the Concordia technique arose from the fact that the two U decay series should give the same ‘age’ but almost always they didn’t—i.e. So, where the top part of the line through the zircons intersects the Concordia curve is said to be the ‘age’ of the zircon.This is interesting, but it was not discussed at the meeting and I do not know how Justin would respond.Justin is not a Christian but does not particularly seem anti-Christian either. Any age calculated is based on multiple unprovable assumptions to match the long-age worldview.Kevin Rogers submitted a comment to that article (reproduced below, edited to focus on substantive issues), to which Dr Jim Mason replies.He is just a scientist who is doing his job and he doesn’t seem to have any particular axe to grind.
