Doesn’t matter if dating is a few percent off. The world is not 6,000 or so years old.
The golden “proof” for an old universe just went out the window.
You say, “The world is not 6,000 or so years old.”
I say, “Prove it.”
You can’t prove it now.
The universe as we know it has changed.
I told one of my students today that we are witnessing a bigger change in our perception of physics than even the discovery of radiation itself.
All of nuclear physics has been turned upside down with this news of a non-constant nuclear decay rate.
Just FYI, I have a BS and MS in Nuclear Engineering and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering. That in itself doesn’t mean that I am correct, it just means that I have a small amount of education.
You miss the point completely then.
