If memory serves, that is how they established the age of the crater to begin with.
The impact cut through about 20 million years of sediment from about 250 million years ago.
The sediment of interest is that accumulated IN the crater SINCE the impact, not what was cut through.

Why do you state that Da Flud did not contribute to the Barringer Crater sediment?
"A lake formed in the bottom of the (Barringer) crater, and sediments accumulated until the bowl was only 550 feet deep."

The cited passages rather clearly explain that those who want to find reasons not to accept the Bible as inerrant will not be prevented from doing so even tho their course is demonstrably a matter of choice rather than the only valid conclusion.

It's not the sources, it's the evidence. The scientific method intentionally disregards the sources.

You already know that answer. The only reason this myth is revisited is because 1) you are just being contrary, 2) you are frightened of the truth or 3) you are delusional.

Did you not read the verses. You must not have:
Read all of 1 Sam 17
David killed Goliath, right?
Next:
19 In another battle with the Philistines at Gob, Elhanan son of Jair[a] the Bethlehemite killed the brother of[b] Goliath the Gittite, who had a spear with a shaft like a weaver’s rod.
No problem here. Elhanan killed the brother of Goliath.
Then:
19 There was war with the Philistines again at Gob, and Elhanan the son of Jaare-oregim the Bethlehemite [a]killed [b]Goliath t
he Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam.
In fact this is a known scribal error. It was a simple mistake. In the NIV (I know, it is nearly as bad as the new world version) it translates it as the brother of Goliath and admit that is not what the Hebrew says.
Most biblical references admit it was an error.
I know, your cult knows better than those darn fool bible experts.

[Hint: the answer begins with Wro and ends with ng]
A scribal error is not an error in "the Bible", is it? It's an error in a copy made by the copyist.

Thank you for the admission of the biblical error.
Now that you have admitted the bible errors we can move on.
The Hebrew word involved doesn't have to mean "fowl", does it? As you like to state only when it appears to be to your advantage, we've been over this before, haven't we? Remember Genesis chapter one? So no Bible error, no license to move on.

Numerous sources contributing to one theory - each one correlating the other.
On the other side of the coin you provide a great insight - One (biblical) source of support, many ideologies? Reliability = GIGO.
Start comparing each of the ideologies to the Bible, and watch them drop like flies. See which one remains completely aligned with the reliable Bible.

khatan
Bridegroom.

But it is also a loan in Arab frm hebrew were it means complating recitations, spelled khatam. Comparable too:
All men in the synagogue (in non-Orthodox Judaism also women) are called up to read the Torah. The honour of being called up is called aliya (Hebrew for accession). Particularly blessed are those who are called up to read the last part of the Pentateuch (aliya khatan Torah – accession of the Bridegroom of the Torah) and the first part of the Five Books of Moses (aliya khatan Bereshit – accession of the Bridegroom of the Beginning).

The land of Israel as bride , YHWH the groom. Khatan also: that which binds.
And we find arab kuli khatam- refering to circumcision. In particularly the part of skin. Something to bind the 200 to Abram before going to release Lot.

So Dogen i would not automatically use 'groom'.

Okay. Find me a reliable Bible and we'll give it a whirl.(I'm partial to the Machinist's Bible - it's by far the most accurate I've come across.)
