How did they arrive at that figure? I lived in Monahans from 1957-1972, went to the dunes many times. Some say earth is millions years old, some say 6,000 yrs. I just wondered how they figured it. Thanks. Jerry Foster

Drawings found in a small cave on the outskirts of the dunes suggest it was frequented as far back as 10,000BC

Check the facts.
There are no caves near the dunes.
It's called "misinformation", and it is an enjoyable past time.
Thoughtful posts from me are rarely what they seem.
Check other posts from this time frame and before, I was already causing trouble for a few months before I posted this one.

This is the way they figured it out. Earth is 13.4 Billion years old!
Stan Peabody Phd., found what appeared to be a crystaline substance dangling right behind anon's tain't. After closer examination it was determined to be from his butt...... it was prehistoric Raptor DNA! It was carbon dated to 13.4 Billion years old...thus the age of the Earth!
Please go to the library if you require more answers to your questions. I have really got to get going now!

For someone that's already left, it sure does seem like you're still around.

I think the way he is saying that he has left, I think he means, he lost his peanut mind. You know his lights are on and nobody's home. Once a dork always a dork, don't change your name, dork.

Kermit, Texas - Now Dallas

Years ago there was a display at the museum in Kermit of a study that was done at the old Indian caves on the caprock right outside of Notrees in Winkler County. I seem to remember it said the drawings on the cave wall were carbon dated back to 13k years ago. About 25 years ago I spent the night out there and got to see the drawings. We built a big fire and drank a case of beer and in general had a pretty good time. Then the rancher ran us off. There are also depressions left in the rock where the Indians would grind corn and grains.
