As recently as September Baugh supporter Ian Juby encouraged the same unfounded notions on his web site, dating champaign urbana that it was known to be from Cretaceous rock Juby, However, the hammer was not documented in situ, and has not been reliably associated with any specific host formation.
If there was no appreciable amount of C14 in it beyond expected residual contamination it would imply the hammer was more than 50, years old, and if younger than that, C14 could help pinpoint its actual age.
Creation Ex Nihilo April PDF Abstract Most recent developments of Schmidt-hammer exposure-age dating SHD as a calibrated-age dating tool have been limited by the use of locations at two age control points. Unless Baugh or others can provide rigorous evidence that the hammer was once naturally situated in a pre-Quaternary stratum, it remains dating ludwigsburg a curiosity, not a reliable out-of-place artifact. Lacking any rigorous geologic evidence for their claims, hammer advocates have tried to make hay from the composition of the hammer head.
Baugh suggested this profile was impossible to duplicate with modern technology under present atmospheric conditions Helfinstine and Roth, The London Artifact," web article at: He also approached some of Europe's largest publishers such as SpringerRingier and Bauerbut none were interested. The answer is that the concretion itself is not Ordovician. According to Helfinstine and RothMax Hahn's son George broke open the rock nodule in orrevealing the rest of the hammer, including a metal hammer head.
Very little of the hammer handle is carbonized, and such features can and normally do originate without any "volcanic" action, and 3. Google ScholarCrossref Cato I.

During a June talk at his Creation Evidence Musuem, Baugh again left the impression that the hammer was found embedded in a Cretaceous formation--telling the audience that it was found "in Cretaceous strata"-- stralsund dating again failing to clarify that the hammer and nudule combination was found loose rather than in situ.
Although a brief rebuttal to Baugh's hammer claims was made by ColeBaugh and a few other creationists continue to promote it. The stone is real, and it looks impressive to someone unfamiliar with geological processes. Google Scholar Ivy-Ochs S.

The krefeld dating design involved 30 measurements on granite beach boulders from 30 sites at 11 age control points. They maintain that the hammer, which was partially embedded in a small, limy rock concretion, originated in a Cretaceous rock formation or an Ordovician or Silurian one, depending on the accountthus contradicting the standard geologic timetable.
