Once we understand what we actually need to do we can apply the same principles to radioactive dating, and see if the methods do what they are claimed to do.
Potassium-40 is another radioactive element naturally found in your body and has a half-life of 1.3 billion years.
Although "evolutionary theory" does not meet the universally accepted definition of 'theory' or 'hypothesis' or, for that matter, the universally accepted defintion of 'science' (see section, Creation versus Evolution, for definitions), students continue to be taught evolution as “proven fact”—and later in life, they perpetuate this doctrine as teachers, journalists, and parents without question.
What many people today never hear and realize is the fact that so-called evolutionary theory is not based on known scientific laws or the preponderance of scientific evidence.
The sum of the masses of these fragments is less than the original mass.
This 'missing' mass (about 0.1 percent of the original mass) has been converted into energy according to Einstein's equation.
