Problems with radioisotope dating singles dating sites review
As the reaction would proceed, the water would heat up and vaporize, thereby depriving the neutrons of the moderating influence of liquid water, and the reaction would slow down.
As the water vapor condensed and reformed, the reaction would pick up the pace again.
Firstly, supernovae have not added a significant amount of new elements to putative star-forming clouds.
If they had, the ratio would be different in various stars.
It is through this mechanism that the radiometric age of the universe is usually calculated as being on the order of ten billion years.
Professor Fowler did exactly this and has maintained his calculated radiometric age for the universe at about 10 billion years, with which I am basically in agreement.
I emailed you about this topic a year or two ago, and I've since taken a class in radioisotope chemistry at UCI.
In particular, because of the way mass and energy are related, they could not have been at variance from our present day observations by any more than one part in ten million; otherwise the natural reactor would not have functioned. I Shylakhter, Nature, 264, 340 (1976) and F Dyson and T Damour, "The Oklo Bound on the time variation of the fine-structure constant revisited", Nuclear Physics, B480 37 (1997) Any significant variation in the relationship between mass and energy - the only variables that determine the speed of light in Einstein's famous e = m c squared - would have to be dated prior to 1.8 billion years ago, based on this witness from God's creation. My reply on those pages was sparked by a question about Oklo and other ore bodies by Bob Gentry.The objective of the RATE research is to develop a model which is consistent with the radioisotopic data and with the Biblical record of a recent creation and catastrophic global flood.The need to spend money on analyses of rock samples by reputable laboratories is to ensure that we have data to model that are free of any bias that may have occurred in laboratories where the 'target ages' are known before the analyses.With high c values, it can be shown that atomic particles moved faster, proportional to c. The high-speed neutrons were not near the uranium nucleii long enough to produce any reaction, just as high-speed neutrons are today.As essentially all the neutrons were in that category when c was higher, the chance of a reaction was significantly lower.
