Upper limit s tell us the maximum possible age the world could have. Lower limits would give us a minimum
possible age. But these processes
give us no minimum, so the lower limit is zero . The true age is somewhere between.
give different upper limits, but they don't contradict each other.
Process 1 gives an upper limit of 200 million years; process 2, 10,000
years. Both processes agree that the true age could
be zero. Both agree that the true age can't be greater than
200 million years. Process 2 says the age can't be greater than 10,000 years, and process 1 says, "Hey, I can live
So these data imply
that something is seriously wrong with with accepted dating
methods and the commonly-accepted view of the world. In my other talks I show that the underlying
