Accuracy of radioisotope dating doubtful
That’s quite a shock to learn that one can be so misled so long.…so for the last few weeks I’ve tried putting a simple question to various people and groups of people.Most scientists first get their ideas about how the world works not through rigorously logical processes but through hunches and wild guesses.As individuals they often come to believe something to be true long before they assemble the hard evidence that will convince somebody else that it is.I know this is an anathema to physicists, as indeed it is to me, but we must not reject a theory that we do not like if the experimental evidence supports it.”‘We have no acceptable theory of evolution at the present time.There is none; and I cannot accept the theory that I teach to my students each year. I teach the synthetic theory known as the neo-Darwinian one, for one reason only; not because it’s good, we know it is bad, but because there isn’t any other. today it is the conventional neo-Darwinians who appear as the conservative bigots.” NOT REALLY ANYWHERE!It is therefore almost inevitable that our own measure of intelligence must reflect …higher intelligences…even to the limit of God…such a theory is so obvious that one wonders why it is not widely accepted as being self-evident.The reasons are psychological rather than scientific.” “Unfortunately many scientists and non-scientists have made Evolution into a religion, something to be defended against infidels.
moreover, for the most part these ‘experts’ have abandoned Darwinism, not on the basis of religious faith or biblical persuasions, but on scientific grounds, and in some instances, regretfully.” “Hundreds of scientists who once taught their university students that the bottom line on origins had been figured out and settled are today confessing that they were completely wrong.We are told, often enough, that the doctrine is founded upon evidence, and that indeed this evidence ‘is henceforward above all verification, as well as being immune from any subsequent contradiction by experience;’ but we are left entirely in the dark on the crucial question wherein, precisely, this evidence consists.” At this point, it is necessary to reveal a little inside information about how scientists work, something the textbooks don’t usually tell you.The fact is that scientists are not really as objective and dispassionate in their work as they would like you to think.Question is: Can you tell me anything you know about evolution, any one thing that is true?I tried that question on the geology staff at the Field Museum of Natural History and the only answer I got was silence.
