Earth science lab radiometric dating

It has become increasingly clear that these radiometric dating techniques agree with each other and as a whole, present a coherent picture in which the Earth was created a very long time ago.

Many Christians accept this and interpret the Genesis account in less scientifically literal ways.

Most processes that we are familiar with are like sand in an hourglass.

In exponential decay the amount of material decreases by half during each half-life.

When the glass is turned over, sand runs from the top to the bottom.

Radioactive atoms are like individual grains of sand--radioactive decays are like the falling of grains from the top to the bottom of the glass.

The passage of time can be charted by the reduction in the number of parent atoms, and the increase in the number of daughter atoms.

Radiometric dating can be compared to an hourglass.

However, some Christians suggest that the geologic dating techniques are unreliable, that they are wrongly interpreted, or that they are confusing at best.

Unfortunately, much of the literature available to Christians has been either inaccurate or difficult to understand, so that confusion over dating techniques continues.

Some of the atoms eventually change from one element to another by a process called radioactive decay.

If there are a lot of atoms of the original element, called the parent element, the atoms decay to another element, called the daughter element, at a predictable rate.

Most of the elements in nature are stable and do not change.

    4) The math is the same whether you pay now or later. I am a big proponent of aggressive savings, however, if you are only earning up to ,000 a year in gross income after maxing out the 401K, I’d rather you not tie up that ,500 in a government savings vehicle until 59.5. All those taxes you paid upfront to the cunning government, and you’ll never once get to utilize the returns on your Roth IRA. That makes me sick, and it should make you sick as well. However, if you decide to withdraw money that has been earned from your after tax contributions, then will be penalized by 10% your normal tax rate.
