The student knows how Earth-based and space-based astronomical observations reveal differing theories about the structure, scale, composition, origin, and history of the universe. Certainly whole civilizations have been incorrect deceived? In that case, sufficient daughter isotope amounts are produced in a relatively short time. The only negative aspect is that at one point Strahler throws in a bit of his own theology--his arguments against the need for a God. Anyway, we're hopefully going on the weathering walk tomorrow weather permitting. Understanding these interactions and cycles over time has implications for life on Earth. Or if one is clever she or he could examine the hourglass' shape and determine what fraction of all the sand was at the top to start with.

Likewise, people actively looking for incorrect radiometric dates can in fact get them. Just in time too, we did the layers foldable today!! Rocks are made up of many individual crystals, and each crystal is usually made up of at least several different chemical elements such as iron, magnesium, silicon, etc. In fact, beryllium-7 is not used for dating rocks, as it has a half-life of only 54 days, and heavier atoms are even less subject to these minute changes, so the dates of rocks made by electron-capture decays would only be off by at most a few hundredths of a percent.

Do you know that a lot of other ancient civilizations also developed complicated calendars and observations about the planets and stars? Then in the s a man named Nicolas Copernicus started a revolution by calculating that the Sun was the center of the Solar System. That made a lot of people angry who believed that the Earth was the center of the Universe and that everything revolved around it.

Eventually people like Johannes Kepler and Sir Isaac Newton went on to show that not only is the Earth not the center of the Universe, but we are a tiny planet revolving around a minor star on the edge of a pretty average Galaxy.

Lubenow's earth science lab relative dating #1 is fairly unique in characterising the normal scientific process of refining a difficult date as an arbitrary and inappropriate "game", and documenting the history of the process in some detail, as if such problems were typical.
