Distinguish between relative and absolute dating of fossils
This new technique not only allows the age of fossil bone to be determined but potentially can distinguish the type of food a dinosaur eats.
Living bone contains very low levels of uranium but during fossilization (typically less than 1000 years after death) bone is enriched in elements like uranium.
However, obtaining accurate depositional ages for sedimentary rocks is very difficult and as a consequence the depositional age of most fossil horizons is poorly constrained.
A potential weakness for the relative chronology approach is that over millions of years geologic and environmental forces may cause erosion of a fossil-bearing horizon and therefore a fossil can drift or migrate from its original layer in the strata.
Currently, paleontologists date dinosaur fossils using a technique called relative chronology.
Where possible, a fossil's age is estimated relative to the known depositional age of a layer of sediment in which it was found or constrained by the known depositional ages of layers above and below the fossil-bearing horizon.
Elephants have tails that swing like cedar tree branches.
Christianity is NOT a business, but that is how it is done in America. Very few Christians know how to reconcile the reality of dinosaurs and science with the Genesis account of creation in the Bible.
It discredits a preacher when he goes against legitimate science, because most people are thinkers and they know bogus teachings when they hear it.Up until recently I had remained neutral in my position of a Young Earth verses an Old Earth view.Since it's not a fundamental Biblical doctrine pertaining to salvation, I didn't take sides in the issue; however, I can no longer remain neutral.Consider the following powerful statement by Pastor Max D. Should one desire a continued, concentrated study of the years from the flood to the birth of Christ, they would arrive at approximately 2,345 years.Thus, from Adam to Christ is close to the figure of 4,000 years.
