For eksempel er grafit opak og sort, mens diamant er meget transparent.
Grafit er blødt nok til at kunne danne en stribe på papir (heraf dets navn, fra det græske verbum "γράφειν" som betyder "at skrive"), mens diamant er det hårdest naturligt forekommende materiale der kendes.
Prior to looking at the many flaws in the Carbon-14 Dating Technique, it should be noted that no radiometric technique is reliable.
They all start with similar flaws, but Carbon-14 has more than the rest.
Radiometric Dating Technologies are presented to the public by evolutionists as utterly reliable clocks for dating earth rocks or biological materials.
There are more than 80 such technologies that are claimed to work.
This Biblical interpretation of the rock record implies that the animals and plants preserved as fossils were all contemporaries.
For some reason, which I have not yet figured out, at least one person per week has been asking me about the Carbon-14 Radiometric Dating Technique.
Laboratory research has shown that the radioactive decay of Carbon-14 occurs in a half-life of 5,73040 years through beta decay that causes the Carbon-14 to revert back to Nitrogen-14.
Evolutionists generally feel secure even in the face of compelling creationist arguments today because of their utter confidence in the geological time scale.
Even if they cannot provide a naturalistic mechanism, they appeal to the "fact of evolution," by which they mean an interpretation of earth history with a succession of different types of plants and animals in a drama spanning hundreds of millions of years.
The Bible, by contrast, paints a radically different picture of our planet's history.
