By carefully digging, we have found that each trash pit shows a sequence of layers.Although the types of trash in each pit is quite variable, each layer has a distinctive kind of trash that distinguishes it from other layers in the pits.There must have been speeded-up decay, perhaps in a huge burst associated with Creation Week and/or a separate burst at the time of the Flood.There is now powerful confirmatory evidence that at least one episode of drastically accelerated decay has indeed been the case, building on the work of Dr Robert Gentry on helium retention in zircons.From the beginning of this course, we have stated that the Earth is about 4.6 billion years old.
This feature is produced by changes in deposition over time.
From the eyewitness testimony of God’s Word, the billions of years that such vast amounts of radioactive processes would normally suggest had not taken place.
So it was clear that the assumption of a constant, slow decay process was wrong.
The goal of this lecture is come to come to a scientific understanding of geologic time and the age of the Earth.
In order to do so we will have to understand the following: To better understand these concepts, let's look at an archeological example: Imagine we are a group of archeologists studying two different trash pits recently discovered on the Tulane University campus and at the Audubon Zoo (where they all aksed for you).
