Uncertainty reduction theory

Dating stage uncertainty

Radiometric dating has simply made the estimates more precise, and extended it into rocks barren of fossils and other stratigraphic tools. This is the demographic in the studies Berger and Calabrese used to develop the theory. Dinosaurs and many other types of fossils are also found in this interval, and in broad context it occurs shortly before the extinction of the dinosaurs, and the extinction of all ammonites. It demonstrates how consistent radiometric data can be when the rocks are more suitable for dating.

If the age of this unit were not so crucial to important associated hominid fossils, it probably would not have been dated at all because of the potential problems. You can't deform a structure e.

Sporebearing land plants like ferns were

Spore-bearing land plants like ferns were always found before the occurrence of flowering plants. This is not circularity, it is the normal scientific process of refining one's understanding with new data. Furthermore, fossil organisms were more unique than rock types, and much more varied, offering the potential for a much more precise subdivision of the stratigraphy and events within it.

Furthermore fossil organismsWith it factored in the

Berger also acknowledges the works of Gudykunst, et al. Besides the papers mentioned here, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of similar papers providing bracketing ranges for fossil occurrences. But these two tested axioms are only a partially useful formulation for understanding such intercultural communication. The more one tolerates uncertainty the less information one seeks.

The principle of inclusion - a structure that is included in another is older than the including structure. Thus people continue to try to reduce the uncertainties they feel about themselves by identifying with even more specific groups. Meaning individuals begin interactions under the guidance of implicit and explicit rules and norms, such as pleasantly greeting someone or laughing at ones innocent jokes.
