Radiometric dating has simply made the estimates more precise, and extended it into rocks barren of fossils and other stratigraphic tools. The geological time scale and the techniques used to define it are not circular. They rely on the same scientific principles as are used to refine any dating half brother concept: There are innumerable independent tests that can identify and resolve inconsistencies in the data. This makes the geological time scale no different from other aspects of scientific study.
Refuting the conventional geological time scale is not an exercise in collecting examples of the worst samples possible.
Europe's double-faced attitude is an indication of the intimate link between Europe's anti-Semitism and its politics. It will become increasingly clear that the anti-Semitic explosion in Europe of the last few years is a sign of the continent's rapid moral decline.
It may take much longer to prove that the same is true of the European attitude toward Israel. Further incidents will make it unequivocally clear that there are sizable hotbeds of extreme racism among the Islamic minorities in Europe. It is beyond doubt that Europe has financed the education and propagation of hate by the Palestinian Authority. Further evidence may be needed to substantiate the claims that the European Union has also de facto supported Palestinian terrorism against Israel civilians with its funds.
