Moon nearly new - much younger than believed!

Postby Brian Jordan » Tue Sep 24, 2013 5:49 pm

Exciting news for creationists!
How old is the moon? Scientists put formation forward 100 million years

Rock samples from Apollo 16 mission finally analysed show the moon is millions of years younger than previously thought
Looks like we'd better give up folks, the creationists... oh, wait a minute...
The team of scientists, led by James Connelly from the Centre for Star and Planet Formation, examined the isotopes of the elements lead and neodymium to place the age of a sample of a FAN at 4.36 billion years.

This is significantly younger than earlier estimates, which put the moon's age as nearly as old as the solar systems - 4.567 billion years.
Sorry chaps, still 4,359,994,000 years to get rid of.

Can anyone guess who has posted this on his Facebook page today?:

What's 100 million years to an evolutionist! Just a slight change! And as they say, "Scientists know the solar system's age (4.568 billion years) quite well. And they can pin down the formation times of relatively small bodies such as asteroids precisely..". Yes--'precisely'--just as precise as their dates for the moon!!! Dates and other aspects of evolutionary belief (molecules to man etc) have changed a lot of years--but they teach this as science. You know God's Word hasn't changed--and nothing in observational science has ever contradicted the Bible's account of origins."


CLUE: he has a beard and enjoys indoctrinating kids about the fossil record and about dinosaurs in scripture. And he clearly does not understand 'context'. Or science for that matter - a subject he has shown he is afraid to debate one on one with another adult.

Not quite got the concept of percentage error as opposed to absolute has he.
