Compact Time. A Short History of Life on Earth

by JOHN C WALTON

This unconventional book takes readers on a journey of discovery into the realm of time – re-examining the very history of the Earth. It highlights the fallacies of methods currently applied to timing Earth history and then draws attention to the radiocarbon dating technique.

Radiocarbon decays away in only thousands of years and undecayed, radiocarbon permeates the whole geologic column; it’s even in fossil dinosaur bones. This implies a compact timescale of only thousands of years for the whole span of life on Earth.
