Before that time, we have absolutely no verification for any supposed dating method of science.(More evidence on this will be found in chapters 6 and 18, Age of the Earth, and Ancient Man.)If human beings have been on this planet for over a million years, as theorized by evolutionists, then we should have a large amount of structures and written records extending back at least 500,000 years.In fact, not even the dating methods confirm the dating methods! With but very rare exception, they always disagree with one another!There are a number of very definite problems in those dating methods.If it is tried a million times and still has not occurred, then the possibility of it occurring has reduced to less than one chance in a million!The point here is that time never works in favor of an event that cannot happen!
When we look at those facts, as available from ancient studies of all types, we find that recorded history goes back only several thousand years.
He explains that if the event is attempted often enough, the total probability of obtaining it would keep reducing!
If it is tried a thousand times and does not even occur once, and then is tried thousands of more times and never occurs, then the chances of it occurring keeps reducing.
This is an important topic, for evolutionists want the history of earth to span long ages in the hopes that this will make the origin and evolution of life more likely.
Yes, an understanding of dating methods is important, but we should keep in mind that whether or not these dating methods are accurate, really has no direct relation to whether evolution has ever occurred or could occur. Evolution can only occur by a sequence of, first, production of matter from nothing, or origin of matter.
Continue carefully watching the pile or puddle for a thousand years and more. Wald in "The Origin of Life," in the book, Physics and Chemistry of Life, says "Does time perform miracles?
