      Todd,

      Your referenced article states, in part:

      scattered uranium atoms in very viscous magma to precipitate as polonium atoms in a localized place in a growing biotite crystal lattice so that polonium halos can form.

      Todd,

      Do you consider there to be a qualitative difference between that approach and the Willis/Humphreys' approach in putting forth various white hole speculations to explain how it is that billions of years passed "out there" while only a few thousand years passed on Earth?

      If so, please explain.

      Sincerely,
