What exactly is your problem with radiocarbon dating, besides that you reject it?


That is a bold assumption, considering you cannot even identify the language Morningstar is using.

(I think you have got confused by his poor quoting/formatting.)

Probably no point in asking this, but what kind of evidence for anything on a planetary scale could you possible see in Australia?


You've made the same mistake as Percy.
The statement you are asking about is from Coyote's opening post and is actually authored by Calibrated Thinker.

Re: disagree with who and what
Seriously guys...
morning star has only posted 1 word in English: "Russian".

The rest is a quote from Calibrated Thinker.

Your translation software is not very good.

Try using Google Translate.

For me now the main thing that you understand only one thing.


Ok.

monringstar writes:

Of chalk and charcoal is time sharing which depends on at what point the water fills one or the other pools.


The sentence is not translated correctly.
I do not understand.

I doubt this will get better.

I think he is saying the formation of chalk and charcoal depend on the timing of some water process.


Yes, it would appear so.
That seems a reasonable interpretation.
But the lack of detail and the poor translation leaves us guessing what he is actually trying to say.

MS writes:

You are a bit wrong. Coal contains no wood. It consists entirely of the remains of marine animals. Charcoal not exist. In any case, should not exist for many reasons.


And the second level of translating leads to a confusing game of Chinese whispers.
Morningstar's response is appears to be unconnected to your reply.

I stand by my prediction.

Friends do not hesitate to ask again. I, too, feel at ease. And a translator speak not easy. That word swallow goals phrases. In general, I think it's time to move on to another level. I give you the original article so that you would have tried all sorts of ways to translate their own. Do not use just my interpretation.


I yield.
