3 dating show results
Findings, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, put the percentage of married couples that now meet online at almost 35% -- which gives what may be the first broad look at the overall percentage of new marriages that result from meeting online.
About 45% of couples met on dating sites; the rest met on online social networks, chat rooms, instant messaging or other online forums.
Obviously both sides of this debate have agendas to promote, and that means that any summary you're likely to read was probably motivated by one agenda or the other.
So I thought this would be a great place to point Skeptoid's skeptical eye, and see how much of the chaff we can cut through to see what the bare facts of the case really are.
You need to have a statistically meaningful amount of argon before your result would be considered significant.
Below about 10,000 years, potassium-argon results are significant; there's not yet enough argon created.
The results came back dating the rock to 350,000 years old, with certain compounds within it as old as 2.8 million years. Austin's conclusion is that radiometric dating is uselessly unreliable. Austin chose a dating technique that is inappropriate for the sample tested, and charged that he deliberately used the wrong experiment in order to promote the idea that science fails to show that the Earth is older than the Bible claims.
Yet the experiment remains as one of the cornerstones of the Young Earth movement.
This dating technique depends on the fact that the radioactive isotope of potassium, K captures one of its electrons and merges with it, turning the proton into a neutron and a neutrino, and converting the potassium into argon.
