Geology BS. Most of the science here you should have learned in high school. It does not take a higher level degree to explain it.

Some facts might take a while to understand. I did a lot of tutoring of students when I was in college. Getting someone to understand something is enjoyable.

I hope this is not Kong's article. I don't think it is. This writer too shows the many flaws in the RATE Project. He also points out that none of it was peer reviewed:

SBT, you can repeat your posting fallacious stories about RATE. We will continually debunk it.
And again, radiometric dating is only one bit of evidence that shows the world is old. Its usefulness is that it gives specific dates. The best we can do with many geologic dating methods is to prove that the age of the Earth has to be hundred of millions or billions of years old and the relative age between strata. Radiometric dating is not needed to show that the Earth is old. We already knew that.
Let's say you see an old man walking down the street. There will be several tips of his age. How he walks, how his skin looks, how his hair looks, teeth, even fingerprints. A picture ID with a birth date is not needed to know that he is old. It does tell you exactly how old. An astute person could get a date within 10% for most cases and 30% for almost all cases.
Sorry SZ, I have no plans to check my brains in at the evo lie door to make you happy today.

Evolution is not a lie. In fact it is always the creationists who end up lying. That is rather humorous.

For example you claimed your RATE study was peer reviewed and you have yet to provide a link showing that it was peer reviewed.

Wouldn't that make you a liar?

Excellent! Be forever ignorant. It doesn't make one bit of difference. The Theory of Evolution will still be studied and refined as our knowledge progresses. How are those peer reviewed studies of creationism, I mean Intelligent design going?

There is nothing I don't understand.

Once again you have no new thoughts just repeating what you see others post.
I think you're really just a Parrot with a voice recognition program.

Now a question that will fry your brain.
Drop a 22 bullet and fire a 22 bullet on a level plane of equal height. Negate wind and air resistance effects.
Which one will hit the ground first?
To be real accurate you must drop the bullet at the same time the fired bullet leaves the barrel.

Hols it, I hate to do this, though I may be coming in late, but replaytime might be correct. If I am right he is talking about falling with the effect of wind resistance.

If there is no wind resistance objects will fall at the same rate, well, almost. So a lighter ball will fall marginally slower than a denser ball in an atmosphere. In a vacuum, like on the Moon, you will not see a difference.
Proven by the Apollo astronauts on the moon like 40 years ago.

It's on video, you can see it for yourself.

<quoted text>Depends on the velocity and gr of the bullet a typical 40 gr 22 bullet will have a muzzle velocity somewhere around 1250 ft per second and will travel over a mile so the fired bullets gunna have a hell of a head start on the one you just drop
In the perfect experiment they would hit the ground at the same time.

The real problem is not one gun fires a straight bullet all arch up at first. So this would have to be a hypothetical test.

Yeah, probably not. I know I have no belief, none needed since I do not consider anything unsupported by evidence to be real, and no faith in anything that is not demonstrably accurate. Just because you're brain is too small to consider the possibility that some people prefer to live in reality doesn't mean it's not possible.

<quoted text>Actually you said "but would it decrease the air resisitance? if you had a ten pound ball at 3,000 f and a same sized ball at absolute zero, would they fall at eh same rate? would the temp difference affect it enough for the lighter ball to fall faster?

Way wrong retard.
Funny how he throws around a temperature like the unattainable absolute zero. Making the test impossible. If he knew a damn thing about science he would not have used a unattainable temperature for his test.

As close as they could measure they fall at the same time. That is still not correct. That is only true for Galilean physics. It is not true for Newtonian physics.

Why not?
