Many things that I was not aware of or just didn't think about.
I started watching one of his debates as well, this guy really can make his point.
Thanks for sharing,
i concur... thank you for putting it in words others can understand .. it was 2 am last night and one should never post when your halfway asleep lol

The answer to this is...well...both...
The answer is found in time dilation and relativity...
Time is not constant. Time is affected by velocity and gravity...and also the stretching of the Universe...
knowing this...along with the generally accepted big bang theory....and understanding the point of references used to calculate the age of the Universe both scientifically(humans frame of reference) and biblically(God's frame of reference) will hopefully shed some light on the subject...
No because mtDNA only holds a limited selection of DNA, its not the full genome.
IF we get our mtDNA maternally....that is, from mother only....would they be able to trace all the various mutations that have occurred back in time to that point in history
Well they are able to identify a common ancestor.
For example, if there were initially 3 female hominoids, they would have 3 different mtDNA codes correct? Could they use mtDNA mutation rates to verify?...
Interesting question. .. Well the article claims our race never fell below tens of thousands.
IDK what the hell I'm aiming for anymore...I just want to know how many f'n females there were in the beginning damnit!

This is complete nonsense. The rate at which Earth Core is COOLING HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE EARTHS EXPOSURE TO SOLAR RADIATION. I cannot even BELIEVE that you would state this!
Earth rate of interior cores Cooling has to do with the amount of Mass that is present in a Celestial Body such as Earth...the Gravitational Effect of a Celestial Body that is generated by any other Celestial Bodies Gravitational Interaction with the other in this case...Earth's interaction with the Moon and the Sun as well as Venus and Mars and even the other Planets to a much smaller extent.
As in the case of Mars which has had it's core cooled to such an extent that it no longer has a Liquid Metal Exterior Core Spinning which is the source and mechanism which creates a Planets EM Field. Since Mars' core no longer spins it has no EM Field and thus Mars' Oceans were burned off or specifically had the Liquid Water changed chemically by Solar Radiation as H20 was split into H2 and O by the bombardment of Solar Radiation.
The thought that Solar Radiation could HEAT THE INTERIOR CORE OF EARTH or that the ratio of Earths Spinning Liquid Metal cores ongoing cooling is dependent upon the amount or changing of Solar Radiation bombardment by the Sun due to Earth changing distance to the Sun in it's elliptical orbit IS FANTASY!
The reason why Earth still has a Spinning Liquid Metal Core as apposed to Mars is that Earth not only has a greater amount of mass but it also underwent certain events such as during the early development of our planet a Moon Sized Celestial Body collided with Earth and was absorbed into the Earth creating both greater mass as well as increasing overall temps. and increasing the size and temp. of the then Super Heated Liquid Metal Core to a point that it allowed Earth both the amount of mass thus an increase in Gravitational Compression upon the core which of course increased core temps.
The AGE of Earth and the time passed that be calculated by a wide variety of means such as Isotopes decay, the age of our Sun based on calculations of the amount of Hydrogen that has been fused into Helium by examining Solar Light Frequency...allows us to calculate the Earths age to a very close actual number of years.
The Earth is 4.54 Billion Years Old with a Plus or Minus of less than 1% of those Years. The Age of our Sun is 4.57 Billion Years with a Plus or Minus even smaller then that of Earths Age Calculation. These Calculations are done by Radioactive Decay of an Elements Isotopes. This decay and calculation is based of the PHYSICS THAT ARE NATURAL TO OUR UNIVERSE and they cannot be challenged as if this was incorrect...we could not exist.
So there we have it...it is IMPOSSIBLE for Earth to be only 6000 years old or less. For anyone to dispute this is not only illogical but also the same as saying that the Physics that Govern our Universe are different here on Earth than anywhere else in the Universe....THEY ARE NOT! Split Infinity
Okay. And we thought that radioactive decay was constant too.....and that it couldn't possibly be affected by solar neutrinos...but that appears to be what happens.
Now...The core of the Earth primarily produces heat via radioactive decay...Yes? If solar neutrinos slow the rate of radioactive decay, they also slow the production of heat..meaning...COOLING.
t's a mystery that presented itself unexpectedly: The radioactive decay of some elements sitting quietly in laboratories on Earth seemed to be influenced by activities inside the sun, 93 million miles away.
Is this possible? Researchers from Stanford and Purdue University believe it is. But their explanation of how it happens opens the door to yet another mystery.
There is even an outside chance that this unexpected effect is brought about by a previously unknown particle emitted by the sun. "That would be truly remarkable," said Peter Sturrock, Stanford professor emeritus of applied physics and an expert on the inner workings of the sun.
The story begins, in a sense, in classrooms around the world, where students are taught that the rate of decay of a specific radioactive material is a constant. This concept is relied upon, for example, when anthropologists use carbon-14 to date ancient artifacts and when doctors determine the proper dose of radioactivity to treat a cancer patient.
"It's an effect that no one yet understands," agreed Sturrock.
"Theorists are starting to say, 'What's going on?' But that's what the evidence points to. It's a challenge for the physicists and a challenge for the solar people too.
" If the mystery particle is not a neutrino, "It would have to be something we don't know about, an unknown particle that is also emitted by the sun and has this effect, and that would be even more remarkable," Sturrock said.
