Topic: Geological strata


  
  HighBeam Encyclopedia - dating
Estimates of the absolute age of prehistoric and geological events and remains amounted to little more than inspired guesswork, as there was no scientific basis for testing such proposals.
Stratigraphic dating is accomplished by interpreting the significance of geological or archaeological strata, or layers.
As new locations are investigated, the geologist attempts to fit the new profiles into the master sequence of geological strata for that region.

 - Feedback for October 1999 -
If you were at all familiar with the creation science texts and/or journals, you would know that they have no need to “admit” that “fossil sorting in the geological strata” as a “difficult obstacle,” precisely because they do NOT “ignore” or “treat scantily” the topic in question.
If the Noachian flood is responsible for the sorting observed in the geological strata, then the sorting will be a function of random mixing or the following nonrandom organizing characteristics: hydrodynamic selectivity-mass and sleekness; ecological habitats-ocean dwelling versus land dwelling entities, et cetera; and differential mobility-strength and speed, the ability to fly, et cetera.
I won’t bother to argue whether “fossil sorting in the geological strata” is of concern to others beside yourself, though I will say you certainly seem to be the only individual to have submitted feedback at TrueOrigin in which so much is made of the matter.

 Xenu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The frozen bodies would have had to have been stacked a mile (1.6 km) deep, covering an area more than six miles (10 km) across around 6 volcanoes.
Even assuming that they were all killed, their fossilized remains would certainly be visible in geological strata today.
There is no sign of any such remains.

A fully human skeleton was found in the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe inside an immense slab of limestone, dated by modern geologists at 28 million years old.
Later these changed species traveled over to the Western World, to be found in strata there as new species.
He saw history in stages, as the Darwinists saw geological strata and successive forms of life.

 A Brief History of the Modern American Creation Movement
He was a theology professor at Concordia Theological Seminary in St. Louis, had an MA in geology from the University of Alberta, and focused on flood geology in his writings.
Some of the main contentions by members were the validity of the gap theory, concern relative to a literal six-day creation, flood geology, and the interpretation of the geological record.
Although the acceptance of a literal six-day ex nihilo creation and the view that the deluge was responsible for much of the geological record was required of voting members, some of the leaders later rejected these views, causing conflicts in the organization.

 History of Evolution Part One
Lyell published his Principles of Geology in 1830-1833, and it became the basis for the modern theory of sedimentary strata,--even though 20th-century discoveries in radiodating, radiocarbon dating, missing strata, and overthrusts (older strata on top of more recent strata) have nullified the theory.
In order to prove his theory, Lyell was quite willing to misstate the facts.
To explain the fossil trans-species gaps, Darwin suggested that species must have been changing quickly in other parts of the world where men had not yet examined the strata.

 DCMI Workshops - DC1: Report
As a result of the restricted focus of the workshop, certain issues required for a complete description of DLOs, such as cost, archival status and copyright information, were eliminated from the scope of the discussion.
Elements required for the description of objects other than DLOs, such as the elements required for the description of complex geological strata in a geospatial resource, were also beyond the scope of the discussion.
The goal was to define a small, universally understood set of metadata elements that would allow authors and information providers to describe their work and to facilitate interoperability among resource discovery tools.
