By the way, it is important to understand that most rock strata “dates” were actually assigned long before the first use of radioactive age estimating methods in 1911.The Carbon-14 age estimating method is, at best, only useful for estimating the age of things that are thousands of years old, not millions or billions.Dubner talks with Nobel laureates and provocateurs, social scientists and entrepreneurs — and his A series of academic studies suggest that the wealthy are, to put it bluntly, selfish jerks. — and to a pet project called USAFacts, which performs a sort of fiscal colonoscopy on the American government.It’s an easy narrative to swallow — but is it true? All it took was a Dutch postal worker’s uniform, some envelopes stuffed with cash, and a slight sense of the absurd. On the Internet, people say all kinds of things they’d never say aloud — about sex and race, about their true wants and fears.An evolutionary view of human origins underlies the World Heritage listing of the Lake Mungo site.Such a view was not good for the first Australians.
An all-star team of academic researchers thinks it has the solution: perfecting the science of behavior change. By day, two leaders of Britain’s famous Nudge Unit use behavioral tricks to make better government policy.And it does not work on rocks or thoroughly mineralized fossils; it is only useful for relatively well-preserved organic materials such as cloth, wood, and other non-fossilized materials.Other methods must be used to estimate the age of rocks and minerals.Most systems promoted by Evolutionists involve radioactivity.Various radioactive elements are involved, including Carbon-14, Uranium-238, Thorium-232, and Potassium-40.(Perhaps it was because of isolation and the pressure to cope with a worsening climate as the continent dried out after the Ice Age.) They, like other peoples, are made ‘in the image of God’ (Genesis ).
