From Council members to residents, everyone is on the same page, and stays informed, while documentation and record keeping become seamless.
Because of the distortions and lies spread by fundamentalists about scientific dating there is a need for a centralized source of information on the topic.
You may find it useful for the clear definitions, and for excellent links on a variety of topic.
From the beginning of this course, we have stated that the Earth is about 4.6 billion years old.
Chronological sequence is all that is really required.
However, human beings love to see factual precision, and we want to know how old something is.

By carefully digging, we have found that each trash pit shows a sequence of layers.
Prior to the late 17th century, geologic time was thought to be the same as historical time.A few examples of such lies are presented at the very bottom of this page.For each dating or chronological method there is a link in the box at right to take you to that section of this page.This may involve long decay chains, with each daughter product decaying into other daughter substances, until finally only an inert element remains that has no radioactivity.In some instances, the parent substance may decay directly into the end product.There is a basic pattern that occurs in the decay of radioactive substances.In each of these disintegration systems, the parent or original radioactive substance gradually decays into daughter substances.Several methods for dating ancient materials have been developed.This is an important topic, for evolutionists want the history of earth to span long ages in the hopes that this will make the origin and evolution of life more likely.There, you will find a brief description of the method, plus links to take you to other webpages with more extensive information.Dating is not necessary to demonstrate that evolution is a fact.
