Finally in 1976, they discovered that the earth is “really” 4.6 billion years old.This “prediction,” however, is based on selected data and certain assumptions that might not be true.As we will see, selected data and unprovable assumptions are a problem with all methods for determining the age of the earth, as well as for dating its fossils and rocks.(He remains in prison in California.) While Alcala's body count is unknown, police estimate the now-73-year-old man killed at least dozens of women, with some counts running as high as 130 – and there are still over 100 photographs of unidentified women who may have been his victims.But in 1978, two years before the murder conviction, there he was: Bachelor Number One.
