This will be covered in the chapters, Primitive Environment (chapter 9), and DNA (chapter 10).
Third, evolution of living organisms into more advanced life forms by natural selection or mutations.
The resulting rock strata may harbor fossils from a particular habitat area or ecosystem, but do not represent a particular age or era.
Though radiocarbon dating is startlingly accurate for the most part, it has a few sizable flaws.In fact, it has fluctuated a great deal over the years.This variation is caused by both natural processes and human activity.In last Tuesday’s lecture, radiocarbon dating was covered briefly.It is an essential technology that is heavily involved in archaeology and should be explored in greater depth.And today we know through lab experiments and natural disasters (such as the eruption of Mt. Helens) that major layering of rock strata can happen catastrophically in a short period of time.
