As in most other cultures, a sky disc is central to Egyptian myth because priori-Mars remained stationary in the sky, twenty times the diameter and 400 times the area of the Moon for fifteen years at a time.It then escaped from the Earth for fifteen years, only to be recaptured.Accelerated decay is in direct opposition to the main assumption of radiometric dating within the evolutionary scientific establishment which is that the radioactive decay rates are constant with time.
Non-literalists, in Morris’s opinion, fail to recognize that their approach “inevitably undermines all the rest of Scripture.If the first Adam is not real,” Morris argued, “then neither is the second Adam real and there is no need of a Savior.” Morris’s Biblically-based assumption that the earth was no more than ten thousand years ago forced him to reject a concept which had dominated geology for more than a century.A scientific research group called RATE ( Radioisotopes and the Age of The Earth ) was formed by the Institute for Creation Research and the Creation Research Society to study this issue from a creationist perspective.They have determined that the most likely times for accelerated decay were the first 2.5 days of the creation week, and during the flood and shortly thereafter.The uniformitarian position is that sedimentary rock, which often appear in layers thousands of feet in thickness, have been laid down by the gradual and steady process of deposition. Mc Campbell, a geology professor from the University of Southwestern Louisiana (and presumably one of the most sympathetic geology professors that could be found anywhere), expressed misgivings with a framework that threw a century’s worth of geology out the window.
“I would prefer to hope that some other means of harmonization of religion and geology, which retains the structure of modern historical geology, could be found,” he wrote.
The problem with radiometric dating is, if the assumptions which must be used to date the object are wrong, the interpretation of the measurements will be wrong.
Usually the scientists doing the measurements are assuming they know, for example, how much C14, which is radioactive carbon, was in the organism when it died (C14 dating is used to determine the age of things that were once alive.) Where did that radioactive carbon come from?
So if someone told you that when they put the ice in the room the temperature was 50 degrees, and then they set the thermostat to 33 so the room would cool down, your interpretation of the measurements you made would be wrong.
The ice was not in the room 12 hours, it was there for a shorter period of time, because it melted faster than you assumed.
by John Ackerman Egyptian mythology parallels much of Vedic and Hindu mythology because both cultures observed the same long series of cosmic events.
