So the trend is not that more information lengthens ages, but rather, as data replaces guesswork, ages tend to shrink until they are consistent with the young-earth biblical timeframe. Helens, Peter Frenzen, describing the canyon on the north side of the volcano.
Consistent with this observation, the May 2000 issue of National Geographic quotes the U. "You'd expect a hard-rock canyon to be thousands, even hundreds of thousands of years old.
Many of these scientific finds demand a re-evaluation of supposed billion-year ages.* Opals Can Form in "A Few Months" And Don't Need 100,000 Years: A leading authority on opals, " More knowledgeable scientists resist the uncritical, group-think insistence on false super-slow formation rates (as also for manganese nodules, gold veins, stone, petroleum, canyons and gullies, and even guts, all below).Carbon-14 has a half-life of 5,730 ± 40 years, meaning that every 5,700 years or so the object loses half its carbon-14.Samples from the past 70,000 years made of wood, charcoal, peat, bone, antler or one of many other carbonates may be dated using this technique.Until this century, relative dating was the only technique for identifying the age of a truly ancient object.
By examining the object's relation to layers of deposits in the area, and by comparing the object to others found at the site, archaeologists can estimate when the object arrived at the site.Carbon-14 is also passed onto the animals that eat those plants.After death the amount of carbon-14 in the organic specimen decreases very regularly as the molecules decay.A team at the University of Copenhagen have tracked down a genetic mutation which took place 6-10,000 years ago and is the cause of the eye colour of all blue-eyed humans alive on the planet today." * After the Soft Tissue Discoveries, NOW Dino DNA: When a North Carolina State University paleontologist took the photos to the right of original biological material, that led to the 2016 discovery of dinosaur DNA, So far researchers have also recovered dinosaur blood vessels, collagen, osteocytes, hemoglobin, red blood cells, and various proteins.As of May 2018, twenty-six scientific journals, including Nature, Science, PNAS, PLo S One, Bone, and Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, have confirmed the discovery of biomaterial fossils from many dinosaurs!Organisms including , and many others dated, allegedly, even hundreds of millions of years old, have yielded their endogenous, still-soft biological material.
