This article describes the research of Paul Olsen who used cores of sedimentary rock to figure out the positions of planets in deep time. The interesting thing to me is what a nice example of corroboration it gives, in that the celestial wobble cycles he identified can be matched up perfectly with geological cycles, Milankovich cycles, and Earth-Mars cycles.
“In the case of the Earth’s history, you need a lot of observations to see what the patterns are before you can derive a hypothesis,” Olsen says. “The world’s too complicated to derive a hypothesis from a series of assumptions and deduce what it must be. And with complex dynamical systems like the solar system, you can’t. There is no analytical solution to the solar system problem, period. You need empirical information.”
To me, this highlights the difference in the way mainstream science is done, vs how YEC “science” is done. I don’t know how you can ignore all these areas where multiple empirical observations all support the same conclusion and predictions made by one line of evidence are corroborated by totally different lines of evidence.
