In the scientific method there's a lot philosophy involved in constructing a logical framework which should produce an experimental result which is free from bias.
The Radioisotope Timescale
Popular science (SciPop) has a timescale designed to rationaliz biological evolution. Along the way it's picked up several pieces of supposedly supporting evidence, one of which is radiocarbon and radioisotope dating.
Inductive Reductive Circular Reasoning
Supposedly, distant stellar objects are so large that they have to be very far away. Either that or they're so far away that they have to be very large. It's a phenomenon we call the geometry of despair.
We (that's me and the Holy spirit) use deductive reasoning to resolve supposed conflicts between the Bible and what people refer to as "science" but which we've isolated and identified to be THE NARRATIVE (SciPop).
