Let’s give it a try. It’s all “science,” right? If I remember from school, “the past is the key to the future.” Forgive me for putting words into your mouth, but I suspect your own position would be that a pencil, if dropped tomorrow, would “fall down.” I suspect that your answer would be the same if it happened next week. In fact, your answer probably would be the same regardless of the time it happened (assuming, of course, we’re on earth and not in space).
Have I got it right? Or, have I messed up? Is it possible that you think a pencil could fall UP rather than down? Thanks for humoring me.
Whatever answer I make you will come back with a response which will require that I know details of physics which I simply don't know.
And I am not willing to fake (or google) knowledge that I do not have.
Bait some of the few scientists remaining here who are familiar with that branch of physics.
You have questions on bones or radiocarbon dating, let me know.
