Abstract (in english)
   As in many other regions dating of peneplains, pediments and similar ancient landforms is a difficult task, so in NE Bavaria as well as in the neighbouring countries, because there are poor biostratigraphic data available only. Therefore, attempt have been focussed on geophysical dating of basaltic eruptions, the rocks of which are either sitting upon the old peneplains or have been cut by a younger pediplain system. Obviously the relevant K/Ar datings are wrong, they give too high ages because of methodological errors to be explained in this paper. The basalts do not belong into the Lower but the Higher Miocene, and on the base of this displacement the author intends to put the blame on the tendency of idolatry some of his colleagues are displaying in the case of so called correct chronological determinations
