Fission track dating

If accelerated decay did occur then fission-track dating; like all other all radiometric dating methods; is hopelessly in error.It's been almost two years since we learned about CRISPR, a ninja-assassin-meets-DNA-editing-tool that has been billed as one of the most powerful, and potentially controversial, technologies ever discovered by scientists.

What about all the other chronic disease states that are a RESULT of our modern ecology?

It will be used for good, profit, and potential "defense" purposes. The means to dominate our planet until we/it wipes us out or find a way to escape it. Regarding consent and gene-drives in human embryos. "Test tube babies" had no consent, and in vitro is no longer considered creepy.

True, your child or her children's children, cannot consent to the fixing of certain genes. If CRISPR can cure genetic diseases, maybe you should have to get consent from your future grandchildren to NOT use it. It is the old "pull the lever to derail the train and kill someone, or pull the lever and kill someone else".

[1] Because fission-track dating, requires a manual count of the fission-tracks, the process is more prone to human error and bias than other radiometric dating methods.

This problem is increased by the fact that there are other types of crystal defects that can easily be counted as fission-tracks.
