Yes, but how about the heat from only a few thousand years?

You misunderstand the point utterly. Why don't you go back, read what was posted and see if you can figure out where you are wrong in your thinking before Mark gets back and gets a bit snarky about it?

Actually we have here you misunderstanding where I am coming from. Now you don't want me to get snarky, so try to get it. If you need help, and are very polite, I may explain.

Well, actually actually, we have you, simple, both misunderstanding what Mark meant and ignoring Ned's hint at a face-saving reexamination of Mark's post. So, let me try to explain it to you - unconditionally.

You see, Mark was talking about the heat of only a few thousand years. He meant that if the heat of the (alleged) accelerated radioactive decay could make it look as though radiometric dating were off by 70 million years, then that would be so much heat that the whole planet would be cooked thoroughly, destroying the amino acids - and everything else - altogether. What's more, it would be because the heat was being released in just a few thousand years.

We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further. - Richard Dawkins
