Carbon Dating, Cold Fusion, and a Curve Ball

"Flood of Noah is proposed to have been a time of massive nuclear transmutations, brought about by the hypothesized ‘neuprons’ that form in cavitation bubbles."

In a world that sees one technological advancement after another, cold fusion could become the ultimate trump card in terms of efficiency. In Moon’s survey of cold fusion and carbon dating, readers get a glimpse of a lesser-known technological device that harnesses the potential to transform the way humanity lives and goes about its business. Specifically, Moon examines many different angles and connects cold fusion through the lens of faith to deliver greater understanding in as direct and simplified a manner as one can with such a complex topic. At its core, Moon hypothesizes that cataclysmic events like the Great Deluge during the time of Noah could result in transmutations that could significantly alter carbon dating methodology and yield different results regarding the age of what is being examined, including our planet.

Terms like “half-life” and “radioactive decay” could easily throw the layman reader for a loop. However, Moon goes to great lengths to help his audience understand the sheer awe of transmutation, such as the element palladium changing to silver if the transmutation occurs at a certain rate. Further, the author notes that transmuting radioactive elements like uranium into non-radioactive ones could be an absolute game changer. While the intricacy of this concept is undeniable, the author’s prose makes it clear that nuclear reactions may not necessarily only happen via nuclear reactors and cold fusion-type cells, but rather naturally in the Earth’s core.

Digging deeper, Moon provides historical context to the advent of cold fusion by Dr. Stanley Pons and Dr. Fleischmann, two University of Utah professors who have given rise to the idea of the new hydrogen energy. Perhaps the most intriguing element of this research postulation is Moon’s focus on ensuring that a connection is made with his reader. This is best evidenced by the numerous analogies present to establish a more transparent understanding of his mathematical formulas. Specifically, Moon uses an example of the shooting range to demonstrate the rate equation and tennis to depict particle emission from the nucleus. Though this text is meant to resonate with the layman, it should not be viewed as one that does not provide value to one who is deeply immersed in this research. The depth and systematic breakdown, both mathematical and theoretical, of how things work as they do are captivating.

Theory, of course, is great, but seeing the theory unfold in practical applications is downright riveting. Moon does not lose sight of this as he delves into real-world examples that highlight the world of cold fusion. In one case, he references an experiment conducted at Mitsubishi Industries in Japan in which a chamber filled with deuterium gas was placed into contact with palladium metal. Ultimately, Moon concludes that with cold fusion being researched and experimented with worldwide, it is only a matter of time before it finds its way into the mainstream, commercialized as a new-age form of energy. Above all else, Moon’s work is comprehensive and thought-provoking, even suggesting that recent findings could possibly alter the timeline and age of both dinosaurs and the Earth itself.
