Isotopic ages have been obtained for material from five landing sites on the moon--those of Apollos 11, 12, 14, 15 and Luna 16; each site has a different age. Ideally, any one basaltic rock from a given site should yield the same isotopic age, regardless of the method used." Science News, V.101, p.12 CONSTANT RATES? Jueneman, FAIC, "There has been in recent years the horrible realization that radiodecay rates are not as constant as previously thought, nor are they immune to environmental influences. Each assumption is a potential variable, the magnitude of which can seldom be ascertained.And this could mean that the atomic clocks are reset during some global disaster, and events which brought the Mesozoic to a close may not be 65 million years ago but, rather, within the age and memory of man." Ind. of Geophysics, "The radiogenic argon and helium contents of three basalts erupted into the deep ocean from an active volcano (Kilauea) have been measured. In cases where the daughter product is a gas, as in the decay of potassium (K40) to the gas argon (Ar 40) it is essential that none of the gas escapes from the rock over long periods of time...A possible mechanism for formation of these high rank coals could have been a short time, rapid heating event." [Six Hours], Chemtech, May, 1972, p. garbage into oil, " British scientists claimed to have invented a way to turn household garbage into oil suitable for home heating or power plant use.'We are doing in 10 minutes what it has taken nature 150 million years to do', said Noel Mc Auliffe of Manchester University..." Sentinel Star, 2/26/1982. "Anything Into Oil" "Turkey guts, junked car parts, and even raw sewage go in one end of this plant, and black gold comes out the other end. Two hours later..." Discover Magazine, Police Speleotherms, "Hanging from a ceiling beam in the 40-year-old building's basement are several rows of formations not usually seen so close to ground level. Yep, stalactites - more than 100 of the squiggly, slippery rock formations that thousands of people pay to see in places named Carlsbad and Mammoth. They are natural cave ornaments, pure and simple." Dallas Morning News, 4/4/1994, p.13A INCHES IN DAYS, "....while some believe...beautiful icicle-looking stalactites take years to form, Jerry Trout (cave specialist with the Forest Service) says that through photo-monitoring, he has watched a stalactite grow several inches in a matter of days." Arizona Highways, 1/1993, p. RAPID, Derek Ager, Past President British Geologists' Asso. It pretends to tell us the whole truth, when it is only telling us a very small part of it.(p.xvi) Nowhere in the world is the record, or even part of it, complete. It may seem paradoxical, but to me the gaps probably cover most of earth history, not the dirt that happened to accumulate in the moments in between. Obviously sedimentation had to be very rapid to bury a tree in a standing position before it rotted and fell down. Standing trees are known at many levels and in many parts of the world. Shrimp, Fish eating Fish, Three Dimensional Fish, Polystrate Trees, Iridescent Shells, Spiders, Jellyfish, Ichthyosaurs Giving Birth, Dinosaur Heart, Dinosaur Blood Cells, Soft Tissue, Bird Tracks, Ubiquitous Ripple Marks "FRESH" DINOS, "Minerals, however, did not replace soft tissue in the bones excavated from the banks of Alaska's Colville River west of Prudhoe Bay. I wrote back and said, Well, what data would convince you? " Discover Magazine, 4/2006 ERASED, "Certain physical limits seem inescapable.
To put it another way, 'good' dates are those that agree with the field data. ...these lavas are very young, probably less than 200 years old. Age estimates on a given geological stratum by different radiometric methods are often quite different (sometimes by hundreds of millions of years).
This practical challenge is one of the reasons documentation is provided in the form of a handout, which allows one to check the entire book or article referenced. "Two important assumptions are implicit in this equation: First, that we are dealing with a closed system.
If you feel that any of the quotes are used in a "deceptive and misleading" way, please contact the webmaster a formal inquiry will be made of your concerns. Significance Of Issue, Earnst Mayr, Harvard, "The revolution began when it became obvious that the earth was very ancient rather than having been created only 6,000 years ago. of CA, Santa Barbara, "As the sun's first ray's of thermonuclear light blazed across the galaxy 4.5 billion years ago, the primal earth emerged from a spinning, turbulent cloud of gas, dust and planetoids that surrounded the new star. On these figures for the age of the earth rest all of geology and evolution." Scientific American, 8/1989, p.90. Given so much time, the 'impossible' becomes possible, the possible probable, and the probable virtually certain. And second, that no atoms of the daughter were present in the system when it formed. of Western Ont., "In conventional interpretation of K-Ar age data, it is common to discard ages which are substantially too high or too low compared with the rest of the group or with other available data such as the geological time scale. Macdougall, "The fourth assumption presupposes that the concentration of uranium in any specimen has remained constant over the specimen's life.
Mckee, "The chief significance of ripple lamination in the geologic record is that it is an indicator of environments involving large and rapid sand accumulation...areas where addition of new sand normally is at a slow rate, have little chance of developing into superimposed ripple lamination... of Geology, Harvard, "it is reasonable to postulate a very rapid rate of deposition; that is a single lamina would probably be deposited in a period of seconds or minutes rather than in a period of hours. Frankfurt, "This proves instantaneous deposition of the individual beds, as postulated by the turbidity-current theory. For more than 65 million years the remains of the vegetarian duck-billed dinosaurs and other creatures lay buried in the now-frozen tundra, which was once a coastal swamp with a subtropical-to-temperate climate.'...their structure was porous and the fossils were not remineralized.' Therefore, in their deep freeze, the Alaskan bones may well have preserved some of their DNA." Omni, 1/90, p.32 DINOSAUR blood cells, SOFT TISSUE "Round and tiny and nucleated, they were threaded through the bone like red blood cells in blood vessels. It was exactly like looking at a slice of modern bone. Hill Dean of College of Mines & Mineral Industries, "A rather startling and serendipitous discovery resulted....
In contrast, areas in which sand accumulates periodically but rapidly, as in river flood plains were sand laden waters of strong floods suddenly lose velocity are very favorable for building up ripple-laminated deposits." Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists, p.107. ...there is factual evidence from both field observation and experiment that laminae composed of bed material are commonly deposited by current action within a period of seconds or minutes." V.36, No. ..not accumulate gradually but were cast instantaneously by turbidity currents each bed in its entire thickness, in a matter of hours or less." Journal of Geology, V.70, p. But blood cells in a dinosaur bone should have disappeared eons ago. These observations suggest that in their formation, high rank coals,...probably subjected to high temperature at some stage in their history.
It is easy to defeat the purpose of effective communication by too much detail in the graphic.
