Well, that experiment was flawed. However, this point holds: there is almost no evidence that an intelligent designer created the world, or created modern biodiversity. There is a great deal of evidence supporting evolution, or something like the modern evolutionary theory. I am a devout Christian, I love God, and I admire the passion of those who believe in ID. However, scientifically, ID has about as much evidence as John Titor on its side.

Care to elaborate?

The pre-organic molecules in that experiment were very concentrated relative to the Earth. Now, recent evidence of free hydrogen in the primordial atmosphere means the molecules produced in this experiment, known as the Miller-Urey experiment, stll likely in the primordial environment. However, this still invalidates the experiment.

So you're saying that given the different densities of the two gas combinations, the variables would be too great to enable realistic reenactment?

Actually, no. Recent studies show that with the reformulated atmosphere the same result appears, as long as you stuff it with electricity. I didn't dispute the validity of the results. However, his variables were of, and therefore his experiment was only a partial success, and you can't build a theory on one partially correct experiment.

MrFancypantsOr maybe two layers moved because of an earthquake. But luckily it is possible to determine the age of things if you look at their C-isotopes.

there are many problems with carbon dating the rate of decay can be sped up or slowed down which would affect eh results of carbon dating for example they have found frozen corpses of mammoths and the ice prevented it from decaying as fast as it normally would and there are many things that can speed up the rate of decay and carbon dating is only accurate if the rate of decay has stayed the same in the object being tested

Yeah, that's why they use multiple isotopes to confirm the age. Hooray for modern science.

i still think that there are problems with the carbon dating i'v done experiments on the decay rate of items and there are plenty of things you can do to speed up and slow down the rate of decay

[color=black]It is possible in some rare instances to alter carbon dating, a large fire for instance, which most likely will increase the amount of carbon.in the sample, thus making the item seem younger than it actually is. The actual rate of radioactive decay is constant. Anyways, Potassium-Argon dating is used on items as old as dinosaur fossils, and that is open to less error. Also, any anomalies that could potentially impact the dating of Potassium-Argon are so rare that they would not affect every single fossil ever found. [/color]
