Gordon Mullings on why no dating method can be trusted:
If this were not so saddening, it would be amusing.
Most of the calibration and ballpark thinking that phase locks results is happening long before we ever see formally reported results.
Recall, what happened to the 212 – 230 MY result for the strata on lake Rudolf. Didn’t match the fossils, so out it goes. Next, cherry-pick samples — subjectivity and plenty of opportunity to silently toss “bad” results. Then, when the evo narrative on the fossils demand a younger age, use fossils from over 100 miles away to recalibrate again.
Presto, we have the required 1.9 MYA. And Wiki dismissed the older 2.6 MY age as an error.
The difference is, in this case, it took years to get to the “consensus,” and the results in stages were published in Nature etc. In significant part, thanks to Richard Leakey’s theory.
So, we can see the sausage factory in action.
Do you understand why I am no longer so eager for sausage for lunch?

Yet ID is true without a doubt!
EDIT: In another comment Gordo reveals more on why everybody has got it wrong:
|(And, maybe the reason for my declaring myself a geochronological agnostic is clearer. Isn’t the revealed inconsistency in standards of warrant ever so telling. For me, all I am saying is that the models and timelines of the past are just that, not practically certain fact.)|
No results found for "geochronological agnostic" are found in google! Gordon is the very first!
Gordon has now resorted to "Were you there?"
|Putting that another way: Indium were you there? Did you see the deep past of origins? If not, do you have the record of those who were? Are we then dealing with that which is testable based on observation? So, then are not our results inherently tentative and untestable against reality, i.e. necessarily circular? |
I also mentioned that He'd have to give me a thorough explanation as to *why* I must "eat human babies".
if there are even critical flaws in Gauger’s work, the evo mat narrative cannot stand
