For the dating we have many pieces of physical evidence, not the least of which is the dendrochronologic confirmation. We discussed that a bit on the thread that spawned this one, and there seems to be no way around that date, unless we completely deny any logical process based on physical evidence. If we do that, then why believe that the civil war occurred, or that your grandfather was born? All we have in those cases are physical evidence. Even dates on paper are physical evidence.
If we are going to accept evidence and logic, then conclusions are arrived at â€“ such as the contents of his last meal or the question of whether or not he wore shoes, and even the date arrived at by multiple pieces of evidence. If we arenâ€™t going to use physical evidence, then we are living in a fantasy world and further discussion is pointless.
The YEC super-genome hypothesis now stands falsified.
