### Implications for the Age of the Earth
**What about the Calculations?**
**An equation in "plain English"**
** ****Question: ***Has anyone done the calculations, based
on your theory of changing speed of light, to see if the radiometric dating of
fossils and rocks goes from the current value of billions of years down to
thousands of years? Is it available on the Internet? Can you please give me a
summary? Thank you.*
**Setterfield: **Thank you for your request for information. Yes, the
calculations have been done to convert radiometric and other atomic dates to
actual orbital years. This is done on the basis outlined in our Report of 1987 and
a the combined timeline.
Basically, when light-speed is 10 times its current value, all atomic clocks
ticked 10 times faster. As a consequence they registered an age of 10 atomic
years when only one orbital year had passed. For all practical purposes there
is no change in the rate of the orbital clocks with changing light speed. The
earth still took a year to go around the sun.
Now the redshift of light from distant galaxies carries a signature in
it that tells us what the value of c was at the time of emission. The redshift
data then give us c values right back to the earliest days of the cosmos.
Knowing the distances of these astronomical objects to a good approximation,
then allows us to determine the behaviour of light speed with time. It is then
a simple matter to correct the atomic clock to read actual orbital time. Light
speed was exceedingly fast in the early days of the cosmos, but dropped
dramatically. At a distance of 20 billion light years, for example, the value
of c was about 87 million times its current value. At that point in time the
atomic clocks were ticking off 87 million years in just one ordinary year.
When the process is integrated over the redshift/cDK curve the following
approximate figures apply.

**NOTE:** When the redshift/lightspeed curve is matched to history, it turns out
to have an almost exact fit. We can look at the past ages and see where
they fit into the biblical timeline by way of the use of the lightspeed curve.
The curve showing the lightspeed through time is here.

**Question: ***What does this mean in plain English? "Time
after creation, in orbital years is approximately, D = 1499 t*^{2}".
You state later that the age of the cosmos is approximately 8000 years (6000
BC + 2000 AD). How is this derived from the formula?
**Setterfield: **This formula only applies on a small part of the curve as
it drops towards its minimum. Note that "D" is atomic time. Furthermore, 't'
or orbital time, must be added to 2800 bc to give the actual BC date. The
reason for this is that 2800 BC is approximately the time of the light-speed
minimum.
The more general formula, but still very approximate, is D = [1905 t^{2}] + 63 million". In
this formula "D" is atomic time, and once the value for "t" has been found it
is added to 3005 BC to give the actual BC date. This is done because the main
part of the curve starts about 3005 BC when the atomic clock is already
registering 63 million years. Working in the reverse, therefore, if we take a
date of 5790 BC we must first subtract 3005. This gives a value for "t" of
2785 orbital years. When 2785 is squared this gives 7.756 million. This is
then multiplied by 1905 to obtain 14.775 billion. From this figure is then
subtracted 63 million to give a final figure of 14.71 billion. This is the age
in years that would have been registered on the atomic clock of an object
formed in 5790 BC. |
