Q u o t e:
Since it hasn't been demonstrated otherwise, I'm going to assume that the objections against Carbon dating are the same bunk I've already heard about. All sources I find tell me that Carbon dating is still accurate up to around 45000 years, and still can't be used on things older than 60000 years or so, which is most definitely not a new development.
It doesn't even matter, because we have other methods of dating which work just fine for longer periods in the past.
Well sorry, you are wrong. If you look up the scientology of those methods, you will see they don't agree because decay rates can't be standarized. It's a guesstimate, nothing more. Water exposure proves those results to vary extraordinarily.
I give it another 20 years and I'm sure they'll debunk carbon-14 dating entirely, as well as radio-carbon dating and replace it tenfold by then, coming up with a new age for the earth that everyone will happily agree is "fact".
