This calibration supposes a great number of basic assumptions concerning initial conditions.
This lack of knowledge was also a bit exciting because I got to roll up my sleeves and learn something new.
What I discovered was there are some key assumptions hidden in this research which makes some of the dates a little less concrete (pun intended) than you may be led to believe.
What do you think about the knife that was found recently and dated to be millions of years old?
Doesn’t that make you question the bible’s creation story?
A committee of the ‘Measure of Geologic Time’ formed by the national research council with Alfred C.
Lane geologic professor as the chair, and began to establish the radio metric dating method.
The discussion of some phenomena taking place during rock crystallization reveals huge discrepancies between the model theory and the reality.
Anomalous « K/Ar model ages » are frequently reported in the literature.
In contrast, the gently sloping shield volcanoes, such as those in Hawaii, typically erupt nonexplosively, producing fluid lavas that can flow great distances from the active vents.
Although Hawaiian-type eruptions may destroy property, they rarely cause death or injury.
The belief that radiodating methods give absolute measurements of time is widespread as a result of scientific popularization in journals, conferences, and the media.
