Radiometric dating indicates that the earth is approximately how old
The calibrated results, released in February of the following year, ranged between 5,200 and 5,300 years BP and were carried out by radiocarbon laboratories at the Universities of Oxford (England) and Zurich (Switzerland).
The uncalibrated radiocarbon datings for the grass were subsequently modified/reworked (in January, 1992) to 4,450 ±75 (Uppsala) and 4,550 ±60 years BP; rendering them in close conformity with those for the corpse.
For instance, expert glaciologists believed it unlikely that a glacier would retain a corpse for thousands of years.
The quiver also contained an untreated sinew that could have been made into a bowstring, a ball of cord, the thorn of a deer’s antler (which is thought to have been used to skin animals), and four antler tips bound together with grass, as well as some flint and pitch.
the latter of which possibly fulfilled a bracing function.
His retarded maturational development, on the other hand, should be of immense interest to creationists—many of whom hold to a belief in greater longevity in the recent past.
On September 19, 1991 two German hikers, Helmut and Erika Simon, stumbled upon the remains of a man in the Similaun Glacier near the border between Austria and Italy.
