Re: Dating 101
For the YECers to be right, the errors would have to be greater than 90%. For example, the art dated to 40,000 BC would have to be redated to less than 4,000 BC, about an 86% error.

I'd consider that to be a 700 percent error. The creationist would claim that the true age of the artifact is 6000 years and would argue that you have measured the age to be 7 times greater than that (42000 years).

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal and hasten the resurrection of the dead. William Lloyd Garrison.

“Choose silence of all virtues, for by it you hear other men's imperfections, and conceal your own.” George Bernard Shaw
