Re: Interested
Interesting, really.... I would like to know how one would determine that someone is certainly bankrupt in regards to morality apart from the Christian God?

Well we all disagree a lot around here. Maybe that makes us all scientists~!

No, it isn't the disagreement that makes science. It's trying to figure out which side of the disagreement - if either - is correct.

An honest discussion is more of a peer review than a pep rally. My toughest critics here are the people who agree with me. -- ringo

seamount and volcano chains
The correlation of dates of volcanoes in seamount chains and land based volcanoes with distance travelled from a hot spot is good evidence for the validity of RM dating. The H-E chain is a great example.

YEC can say only the "right"dates get published.

Does anyone here have references for relevant dates from the 60s and early 70s before plate tectonics was accepted? A date which was found after publication to be consistent with distance travelled would be quite telling.

Not quite what you're asking for, but here's something that Glenn R. Morton wrote before his religious melt-down in which he examines John Woodmorappe's (pseudonym of a high school teacher, as I understand it) list of "bad dates" -- https://morton-yec-archive.blogspot.com/...age-of-earth.html. Basically, most of the "bad dates" that Woodmorappe presented ended up being too young, not "too old" as a YEC would want bad dates to be in order to reflect their false beliefs.

Edited by dwise1, : "reflect their false beliefs", not "reflect his false beliefs"
