The NG article assures the reader that they have been constant for all time.Actually, it was once believed that external physical processes could only alter decay rates, at most, by a few percent.Third, uniformitarian geologists violate their own principle when they reject ‘impossible’ dates even if they are consistent with each other.
Open system behavior has been investigated experimentally by heating igneous rocks.
The results have been used to argue that, apart from exceptional situations (where rocks are heated up to at least several hundred degrees Centigrade), it is very difficult for rocks to become open systems.
All isotopic dating methods are based on the radioactive decay of certain nuclides and the associated production of daughter isotopes.
How can we be certain that radioactive decay rates have not changed in the past?
Later, as an adult and ex-evolutionist, Dr Wieland was determined to produce a magazine as high in outward quality but promoting the truth—hence has presented the unsuspecting reader with a totally one-sided and uncritical portrayal of the dating methods used by conventional (uniformitarian) geologists.
Evidently, NG is now being pressed into service as a cheerleader for the dogmas of the old Earth and Universe.However, we now realize that hydrothermal waters, at temperatures of only a few hundred degrees Centigrade, can readily move chemical species from one rock system to another.Even rocks which show no microscopic evidence of alteration often give ‘impossible’ dates, so uniformitarian geologists tell us that these rocks have become open systems—even when independent evidence is completely absent.Recent attempts to extend the radiocarbon ( magazine has increasingly deviated from the subject of geography and become a virtual propaganda mouthpiece for evolutionary speculations.Its pro-evolutionary fanaticism has led to a severe lack of discernment, even extending to pushing frauds, such as the ‘Piltdown Bird’ it called , as a missing link, but the effect was profound at the time.Similarly, the article tells the reader that the oldest rock from Earth dates at 4.03 billion years. There have been much ‘older’ dates obtained, by various dating methods and from different locations on Earth, some of which exceed years.
