Carbon dating a scam
Climate records from a Japanese lake are set to improve the accuracy of the dating technique, which could help to shed light on archaeological mysteries such as why Neanderthals became extinct.Carbon dating is used to work out the age of organic material — in effect, any living thing.
The results can be as much as 150 million years different from each other! They then pick the date they like best, based upon their preconceived notion of how old their theory says the fossil should be .
So they start with the assumption that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago, then manipulate the results until they agree with their conclusion. So why is it that if the date doesn't fit the theory, they change the facts?
Roger Pearse replies (August 4, 2001): This early “fifth century” form of the legend does not recur much, if at all, but in 2006, we find another spotting of the claim of “carbon dating of the Nag Hammadi literature,” although without any specific date, and it is to be quite significant for the development of this urban legend. Brown (June 8, 2006): This is the oldest dated sighting of the “fourth century” form (AKA the “mountainman” form) of the legend. These appear to be the following: 1) Binding on the text – gospel of Thomas (to 350 CE) 2) Binding on the recent gospel Judas (to 280 CE /- 60 years) Notice the amount of uncertainty above (“there appears to be” and “these appear to be”).
The Making of the Myth In reply to this quote from P. Notice that in the oldest sighting, there is no particular date given. The next day, this claim is repeated in the same thread with slightly more detail but still with some uncertainty.
These appear to be the following: 1) Binding on the text – gospel of Thomas (to 350 CE) 2) Binding on the recent gospel Judas (to 280 CE /- 60 years) I am interested to determine whether there are any other carbon dating citations to new testament texts other than the above two. and finally has a citation to support his belief in the existence of a citation, which supports his belief in a C-14 dating of a codex of the Nag Hammadi Library, a belief which was held already as early as June/July of 2006, prior to reading this book.
