Logic, no matter how rigorous, breaks down when we're speculating about the origin of the universe from the starting point of having rejected the truth: God revealed testimony about our origin.
Popular science (SciPop) has a timescale that's been induced to rationalize biological evolution. Along the way it's picked up some supposedly supporting evidence: radiocarbon and radioisotope dating.
Ages in Chaos
Immanuel Velikovsky wrote "Ages in Chaos" but the ages aren't in chaos, Earth is about 6,000 years old. Popular science (SciPop) however, can only be chaos. By default.
Uniformitarianism exists to support the time scale needed in the popular science narrative of godless existence (SciPop) but it's not a testable hypothesis, so it's not scientific.
Hell with Benefits
There are benefits to hell being at the center of the Earth. It solves the problem of exponential nuclear decay and renders radiometric dating useless for the development of an ancient Earth narrative.
Since there's no positive proof that nuclear decay rates have always been constant popular science (SciPop) depends on a negative result to a flawed hypothesis. When you've got nothing, you've got nothing to loose.
Sir Isaac Knew Tons
Sir Isaac Newton was fully aware that we could use words to define phenomena which were in fact unknown. Words are defined by what we use them for. It's a sublimely subtle form of induction.
Radiometric dating has been contrived in such a way as to make it look as if the "dates" it calculates for rocks are absolute. Absolute means that the dates are separated on a timescale which is known.
When we were taking our 'O' levels, grades 9 and 10, we strategically sought understanding of the theoretical anchors which which have been used to build the popular science narrative godless existence (SciPop).
Magnoliaceae, Lauraceae and Juglandaceae
"Angiosperms having affinities with Magnoliaceae, Lauraceae, Juglandaceae". This may seem random but it's nuanced evolution narrative, you just have to know something about the development of Angiosperms.
