A child mummy is found high in the Andes and the archaeologist says the child lived more than 2,000 years ago.
How do scientists know how old an object or human remains are?
Which is: The Earth is only a few thousand years old, and what happened here in 1980 proves it. Anderson and his wife, Doris, are the founders of the Mount St.
Helens Creation Information Center and curators of the 7 Wonders Creation Museum.
Lloyd Anderson, far right, takes home-schooled children on a tour of the land around Mount St.
Helens, pointing out geologic structures formed by the volcano’s eruption in 1980 that young-Earth creationists say support their beliefs.“Look! ” Lloyd Anderson springs ahead of the small group of visitors he has been leading through Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
This argument was popularized by Henry Morris (1974, p.164), who used some calculations done in 1968 by Melvin Cook to get the 10,000-year figure. Whitelaw, using a greater ratio of carbon-14 production to decay, concluded that only 5000 years passed since carbon-14 started forming in the atmosphere!
The argument may be compared to filling a barrel which has numerous small holes in its sides.
We stick the garden hose in and turn it on full blast.
The water coming out of the hose is analogous to the continuous production of carbon-14 atoms in the upper atmosphere.
Their method, a type of radiometric dating called uranium-lead (U-Pb) dating, relies on the fact that uranium isotopes radioactively decay to form lead isotopes.
