Let me know you can't get to them. †I'm experimenting.

Most of them work fine, but I can't seem to access the gruesome one of the trainer being eaten by the killer whale. If I didn't know better, I'd say there wasn't one in the album. It keeps skipping past it or something.

@ dvkannon and afarensis

Thanks for the clarification re cave art. Seems the authors of the paper just wanted to write a snappy introduction, thus encroaching on a field of science they have no expertise in (cognitive development). Of course, neither have I. :-))
Did any of you see the film about the Chauvet cave? I loved it.

HELP!!

I'm working on this project and the discussion revolves around changes to the C-14/C-12 ratio because of magnetic field changes, increasing and decreasing the cosmic radiation, resulting in more or less C-14 in the atmosphere.

Now, my question is... if the amount of C-14 in the atmosphere increases, shouldn't that lower the radiocarbon date (before calibration)?

This sounds right to me, but I'm having trouble showing it mathematically.

Any resources or help would be greatly appreciated. †And if I'm mistaken and the C-14 is smaller, do let me know.

edit:
FOUND IT!

I found the C-14/age curve and it show the inverse relationship.

I would like to add to the following quote from Bill:

Recall that the problem with supernatural causation is that any observation can be reconciled with it. Because any observation can be reconciled with it, it is incapable of making testable predictions.

This is the case because we know zero about the designer. This problem can only be solved when we have actual candidates for being the designer, candidates from wich we know the capabilities and limitations. This is exactly how real world design detection (in archeology) works.


Really, it is like the evolutionary predecessors to a flat earth: javascript:emoticon(':O')

I'm not sure I buy the argument that a change in the Earth's magnetic field strength would change the amount or energy of cosmic rays entering the atmosphere and creating  C-14.

It seems to me that a variation in field strength would only affect the the distribution of incidence into the atmosphere (towards or away from the magnetic poles) but not cause charged particles to hit/avoid the planet or be more/less energetic. Since the C-14 is created in the upper atmosphere (I'm assuming) I would expect it to be thoroughly mixed and therefore just as likely to get incorporated (or not) in organic matter as C-14 created in the tropics.

Cosmic ray variations due to the Earthís magnetic field

Thank you for helping me learn something new!

I assume the neutron monitors are observing neutrons that are a byproduct of the cosmic rays. As neutral particles, the earth's magnetic field should not deflect them at all.

Still, the variation is 0.5 of some unit for 12 hours? Because low energy cosmic rays got through a weakened field. Are these low energy cosmic rays of the right energy to create C-14?

Accepting the possibility that there could be an effect, it seems that times of pole reversal and disappearance of the earth's field might leave a signal in C-12/C-14 ratios, but most of those events have happened too long ago for the C-14 to survive.

The cosmic rays are charged, after interacting with the atmosphere they produce secondary particles, said neutrons.

As you say, geomagnetic reversal is not visible for C-14, but there are cosmogenic isotopes, which I learned about via climate and when some IDiot was arguing here about radiodating (specifically strontium).  I had to look it up - forastero.

Given that Abbieís position on the matter is so utterly awful itís not even wrong, this does not bode well. If youíd care to expand on what you mean and what position this is and why you hold it, I at least will listen. Itís pretty old hat around here though, I wouldnít expect a great deal of sympathy from me or anyone. On this at least, Abbie done fucked up and done fucked up again and again.

How has Abbie done fucked up? And done fucked up again? Please?

It appears to be more of the cult of PZ.

FYI - I just had a go at commenting on one of James Barham's entries over at TheBestSchools.org blog.

http://www.thebestschools.org/bestsch....italism

I registered, entered my comment and waited. The familiar (to those who have posted at UD) "Your comment is awaiting moderation." message appeared over my text. I waited.

But lo! Today my text is gone. It looks like Barham has learned a few things from DeNews and the rest of the UD/DI crowd.

Based on how often Barham's blog is quoted at UD, the appearance of DO'L as a contributor at TBS, and the fawning bio of Barham currently up at ENV, it would appear that the DI link farm has been expanded.
