TL dating[edit]


I used TL to date several basaltic rocks between the ages of 11,000 (+-500) years and 140,000 (+-10,000) years, with the younger dates being corroborated by C14 dating. I am advised the older date has been recently corroborated by another dating technique. (I will hunt out the reference to my thesis someday.)

King Clone should be added to this list[edit]

Dating methodology[edit]

King Clone was identified and the 11,700 years old age documented by Frank Vasek, a professor at the University of California, Riverside. After Vasek hypothesized that the creosote ring was in fact one organism, Leonel Sternberg (then a graduate student working in Vasek's lab), was able to show that plants in a ring had some identical characteristics, but those shared characteristics differed from other plant clusters. Vasek then used two methods to determine the age of the ring. One method counted rings and measured the distance of annual growth, and the other used radiocarbon dating on chunks of wood found in the center of the ring, and measuring their distance from each other and the living bushes. Both dating methods yielded the same result.— Unsigned, by: 162.210.104.22 / talk / contribs

Transmissible dog cancer[edit]

There exists a transmissible dog cancer whose lifespan can be (somewhat weakly) estimated at 11,000 years. 32℉uzzy; 0℃atPotato (talk/stalk) 20:50, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

The English playwright Christopher Marlowe was under suspicion of atheism before his death in a supposed tavern brawl in 1593. An informer's report of things he was supposed to have said in conversation included Marlowe maintaining that the Indians documented the world being older than 20,000 years whereas the Bible said it was only about 6,000 years old.Philosophyfootball (talk)

Another argument against[edit]

The YECs have to spend so much time and (real or computer-equivalent) ink (of whatever colour) on 'justifying' their position: and whatever the equivalent of circular-based astronomy's epicycles would be. Anna Livia (talk) 09:09, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
