So let's see them do that to show Adam would have fossilized!

Re: different causes for different layers?
Radiometric dating assumes that the decay we now see happened in the past with no limits. The ratios of parent and daughter isotopes are used to determine how much time it took to produce the daughter by that decay. Anything else? I question your grasp of the sciences you cited. So there.

You try. Jigs up though. Won't work with me.

Re: different causes for different layers?
The layers were not all deposited by a flood. Your insult to the bible is noted.

Re: different causes for different layers?
Apparently decay is off topic.

Re: different causes for different layers?
Well carbon 14 is one type of radioactive decay. However I won't destroy your claims here since it is off topic.

Can we get a post that is on topic?


Yes, someone mentioned layers and the life fossilized in them. I mentioned that this involved assuming and believing nature was the same and therefore all life would be represented by what could fossilize. I have no reason to believe that man or most animals would or could have fossilzed. It seems to be a bare assertion to claim they could!

Re: different causes for different layers?
So how would we know if man existed if there can be no remains? After all God said to dust Adam would return, not to fossilized remains.

Nope, it's a conclusion.

We have lots of evidence that radioactive decay was constant in the past. Radioactive decay involves deeply fundamental properties of the universe and any significant change would leave many widespread traces in the present.


Name one solid piece of evidence?

quote:

Plus the fact that enough AND to make YEC possible would have melted at least the surface of the Earth and killed every living thing, including those on any ark, from radiation inside their bodies.
Explain what you mean exactly.

quote:
The RATE group acknowledges this, and has no solution. See Heat and radiation destroy claims of accelerated nuclear decay
?? Did I claim ANY decay, let alone accelerated?? Can you prove that assertion?

quote:

Most (definitely not all) radiometric dating involves measuring the ratio of parent to daughter and other significant measurements and facts.
I agree. However what that measure really represents is the issue.

quote:
Since it's obvious that all you know about radiometric dating is some vague notion of parent/daughter ratios, your questioning is of no significance.
Hey just because I mention something in a sentence doesn't mean that is all I know.

Edited by Admin, : Fix first quote.

Edited by starlite, : No reason given.

Re: Has YEC Changed That Much?
No. I don't pay much attention to all that. Thanks. Would you not agree that believers ought to look for some better explanation than a single flood for all the geologic record?
