Uniformitarian or Catastrophist? Ice Age Theory. Poleshifts, Catastrophes and Myths. Did the mammoth live in Alaska and Siberia during the Ice Age? Pollen research emphatically denies this. Could the bones, tusks, and bodies of mammoths have been buried gradually and preserved in the tundra? Recent studies prove this ...

113. Letters [Journals] [Pensee]
... stalagmite which is deposited over a ten-year period." He states that it is rarely more than a thickness of 0.010 inch. Plummer is here assuming, perhaps blinded by the Doctrine of Uniformity, that the process has been going on at the same slow rate indefinitely., Plummer then writes that stalagmites can be dated by the radiocarbon method. "Typical measurement for the outer inch or two of large cave formations show ages up to thirty thousand years." The validity of radiocarbon dating has been debated in other pages of Pensée- here I only intend to show that thicknesses exceeding two inches can, and have been, formed in less than a century. In the ...

114. Pot Pourri [Journals] [SIS Review]
... His appendix provides the relevant text from virtually all the known sources. The episode in which Gilgamesh destroys the stones that are the ferryman's means of propulsion [9 ] across the Waters of Death' is utterly meaningless except in the context of just one place in the world - the Bosporus strait leading into the Black Sea'. (The radiocarbon dating of the Black Sea flood would place it very shortly before the southerly migration of the Cainites from Azerbaijan, via Tepe Guran, to Susiana (c . 5500) according to the theories of David Rohl [10].) Wilson debunks findings about the remains of Noah's Ark: Navarra's fragments of the Ark', dated to ...

... : Evidence for a Neat Year of 365 Days 8 Analysis of evidence from Middle East and Central America indicates that in the past the length of the year was 365 days neat' - not 365 ¼ days as today. John E. Dayton: Ice Cores and Chronology 12 The author of Metals, Minerals, Glazing and Man critically reviews radiocarbon, tree ring and ice core dates. If the Thera eruption was not 1628BC (as currently favoured) but 1159BC, interesting conclusions follow.

116. The Recency of the Surface [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . Astronomers figure time in light-years over vast distances, but this is a convenience, not a measure of history. Empirical tests are, however, also theory-dependent, as, for example, the "thermonuclear" Sun whose dynamics are invisible, and the potassium-argon radioactive decay tests performed upon moon soil that presume a three-billion-years-old Moon, or the radiocarbon test that believes in a practically constant atmosphere. Every discipline advancing long-time claims would today be in a defensive posture were it not for the heavy investment, both intellectual and material, in radiochronometry, which is believed to be paying rich dividends. The bedrock defense of radiochronometry is that radiodecay rates of known elements are regular and inalterable by ...

117. Aftermath to Exposure [Books] [de Grazia books]
... some large meteorites pelted it, too. These events are described on many pages of Worlds in Collision as having taken place mainly in the 8th century before the present era... the sharp outlines of the formations, in the presence of an atmosphere, speak for their recentness. ' Velikovsky's efforts of more than a decade to induce radiocarbon laboratories around the world to test objects from the New Kingdom of Egypt have yielded their first fruits. The test results are compatible with Velikovsky's chronology and quite incompatible with the conventional timetable. In 1963 three small pieces of wood from the tomb of Tutankhamen were delivered to the radiocarbon laboratory of the University of Pennsylvania Museum. The Director of ...

... errors. So for example potassium-argon dating of the Late Cretaceous lava flows of the Deccan Traps in India has given ages ranging from 80-30 Myr, whereas argon-40/argon-39 dating, a new technique which is regarded as more reliable, produced a much narrower age range of 68-64 Myr [53,54]. Another method of uncertain accuracy is radiocarbon dating: this is applied to materials of biological origin, and so results will depend on the concentration of carbon-14 in the atmosphere when the animal or plant was alive (a likely variable), as well as on the decay of carbon-14 to nitrogen-14 in the tissues after death [14]. Radiocarbon dates for the most recent few ...

... people (Bernal, 1969: 109). The Olmec II ceremonial center, by contrast, was clearly recognized by the original excavators to have gone through three major renovations under one continuous group of leaders; the area in question was termed Complex A' and its history divided into Phases I through IV. In 1957 Drucker and Heizer obtained radiocarbon dates for nine wood charcoal samples from Complex A: five from Phase I, one from Phase II, one from a trench cut into the north platform of the great pyramid and presumed to be from Phase III or IV, and two from the lowest level of the drift sand mantling the site and interpreted as of early post-phase IV ...

... of fission-track chronology (like those of most other radiometric methods) yield a wide scattering of dates, which are customarily "averaged" to produce a misleadingly precise outcome. He writes that New Zealand lava, which is assigned an antiquity of 465,000 years by the potassium-argon methods, is assigned one of only a thousand years by the radiocarbon method. Yet he further notes that radiocarbon dating frequently conflicts not only with other radiometric methods and with historical records but also with contemporary observation, as when a South African petroglyph painted in 1991 was carbon-dated to about 800 AD. Without using the technical phrase "polystrate fossils," Milton illustrates it by citing forty-foot trees found standing upright ...
