Trees continally grow outward during their lifespan by surrounding the central, live section with dead cells, or bark.However, trees grow faster in summer and slower in winter, causing 'tree rings' of different growth rates to form.

Instead, dendrochronologists determine the qualities of each ring and determine whether other local trees possess the same qualities in the same ring in a process called "skeleton plotting".
If the tree rings between different trees formed in a similar way, then it's likely that those trees have undergone the same variation at the same time.
RATE stands for Radioisotopes and the Age of The Earth, a 9 year project by creation "scientists" from the Institute for Creation Research to study radiometric dating as applied to the age of the Earth.
The results of the RATE team supposedly bring into question the accuracy of radiometric dating and attempt to show a young Earth.
101 evidences for a young age of the earth and the universe is an extensive list of arguments for young Earth creationism (YEC), compiled by Don Batten in June 2009 for Creation Ministries International (CMI). Batten collects a variety of supposed uncertainties in science dealing with the past that could allow one to simultaneously maintain belief in the validity of the scientific method and the literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis through confirmation bias.
The apparent intent of the article is to help other creationists struggling with cognitive dissonance, and for use as a conversion tool.
Although the list claims to have 101 points, several are just reworded duplicates and one is even a copy of the preceding item.
