Re: Bump (again) for creationist input
To those creationists who say radiocarbon dating is invalid because of "assumptions" -- here's your big chance!
I am no creationist, but check out this website:
The Carbon Dating Game
But be forewarned: this WILL give you an ice-cream headache.
Here's my favorite quote:
You may find some people unwilling to listen to any argument against carbon dating, making a statement like, "The scientists would have seen what you are talking about -- I'm sure they can explain it," but that statement ASSUMES that a scientist cannot make a mistake because they have a degree and a labcoat. I'm not kidding, it's that bad; most evolutionists ASSUME another evolutionist can explain their ASSUMPTIONS, and they take that on complete faith! We need to put our foundation on a secure foothold, like the eternal security of Christ's Words, before we are crushed by the tower of assumptions created by faith in men.
