So scientist observed species evolving for millions of years and can verify? If not then it is assumption by viewing aging you see and then calculating the age by how it ages before you but this process is speculative at best. You can observe this process your whole life and and then another life and still have no clue of how and what all the conditions were in the process of billions of years of evolution without speculations.To claim anything other is absolute fairytales and bold faced lies.

So gravity is also wrong because i can drop rocks for a lifetime or 2 that still dosent mean at some point rcoks will not fall up or at some point they will fall up.

The theory of magnetism is also a fairytale because one can try to push + + poles together for 2 lifetimes that still does not mean at some point they did not attract each other or will attract each other.

The theory that the earth is ball shaped is also a fairytale i can walk around the earth for a lifetime or 2 that still does not mean it dint used to be flat or that it wont be flat again. We should just shoot down our satellites before they come down on their own who needs gps or satelite tv

OH AND LETS NOT FORGET
GOD IS A FAIRYTALE I CAN LIVE 1000 LIFETIMES AND STILL NOT SEE HIM!!!

Hi Scotty,

The message you're replying to referred to the calculation of decay rates and their use in determining age. If you think these are "fairytales and bold faced lies" then you have to explain how.

Hi ScottyDouglas,

So scientist observed species evolving for millions of years and can verify?

Scientists have observed species evolving all around us and can verify that the process of evolution is an empirical objective fact, so you can repeat these observations should you so desire.

Scientists have observed the effects of evolution on species, and can recognize and verify those effects in the fossil record, and this too is an empirical objective fact, so you can repeat these observations should you so desire.

The Theory of Evolution (ToE), stated in simple terms, is that the process of evolution over generations, and the process of divergent speciation, are sufficient to explain the diversity of life as we know it, from the fossil record, from the genetic record, from the historic record, and from everyday record of the life we observe in the world all around us.

These process explain the fossil record, and this has been verified by peer review by hundreds of independent scientists.

No other explanation provides as complete an explanation of the fossil record. Curiously, that is all that is required by science - explaining the evidence in the best known manner.

If not then it is assumption by viewing aging you see and then calculating the age by how it ages before you but this process is speculative at best.

Again, we can measure the age of rocks and other things by known verified means, and if you doubt this then you need to investigate it. Age Correlations and An Old Earth, Version 2 No 1 is a good place for you to start, as I have suggested before.

Without doing so then you will just be repeating comments based on ignorance.

To claim anything other is absolute fairytales and bold faced lies.

So go to the Age Correlations and An Old Earth, Version 2 No 1 thread and demonstrate that it is "fairytales and bold faced lies" -- unless you want to willfully stay ignorant of what can be known and verified.

Enjoy.
