An Italian study led by Maria Pareschi of the Italian National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Pisa indicates that a volcanic collapse of the eastern flank of Mount Etna 8,500 years ago would likely have caused a 10-storey (40 m or 130 ft) tsunami to engulf some Mediterranean coastal cities within hours.
Some scientists point to the apparent abandonment of Atlit Yam around the same time as further evidence that such a tsunami did indeed occur.
It is assumed that the contemporary coast-line was about 1 km (a half-mile) west of the present coast.
Piles of fish ready for trade or storage have led scientists to conclude that the village was abandoned suddenly.
This is not only true for recent and young volcanics, but for ancient volcanics such as the Middle Proterozoic Cardenas Basalt of eastern Grand Canyon. In conclusion, the fact that all the primordial argon has not been released yet from the earth's deep interior is consistent with a young Earth.
Also, when samples of volcanic rocks are analyzed for K-Ar and Ar-Ar "dating," the investigators can never really be sure therefore that whatever K since their formation, or whether some or all of it came from the mantle with the magmas.

Remains of rectangular houses and hearth-places have been found, along with a well that currently lies 10.5 m (35 ft) below sea-level, constructed of dry-stone walling, with a diameter of 1.5 m (5 ft) and a depth of 5.5 m (20 ft) lower.
The fill contained flints, artifacts of ground stone and bone and animal bones in two separate layers.This lack of knowledge provides an avenue to evolutionists to take advantage of other people, as they build a case for what would at first seem like a solid foundation of evidence for an old earth theory, but when fully examined, proves quite the contrary.The development of radiometric dating occurred in 1896, and was based on the discovery of Henri Becquerel, who discovered that some chemicals remain radioactive over periods of time.Other factors and basic assumptions must also be considered.Of course, Kelvin formed his estimates of the age of the Sun without the knowledge of fusion as the true energy source of the Sun.A committee of the ‘Measure of Geologic Time’ formed by the national research council with Alfred C.
