    The issue is this: if a large percentage of Christians continue to insist on obvious falsehoods, that will turn the young, now primarily educated generation away from it.

    Precisely my fear

    Do you see how you might not be able to accurately measure a millions year old fossil with that method? It's like breaking open a diamond to look for coal: that stuff is long gone
    It's the fact that you CAN find C14 in fossils and diamonds that we know that they are not millions of years old. You may want to go read the article yourself, because you've clearly missed the point of my argument.

    You can't reject dating methods, then claim an improperly used dating method supports you. That's just silly
    If there is significant amounts of C14 in fossils, diamonds, and other places which are claimed to be millions of years old, then those items cannot, I repeat, CANNOT be millions of years old, BECAUSE C14 breaks down completely (to levels which are insignificant) in less than 100,000 years.

    Do you think flat Earthers don't believe in their "evidence"? It's very very much the same as you denying established science in favor of a universe and Earth that are quite old

    Just as there are Christians here (ME!!!) arguing against your "theory". Again, I see little difference

    Primarily educated? Most students today do not obtain the same standard of education as was possible 30-50 years ago.

    But you don't JR. Other than contaminants. I'm sorry, but that's simply not true. I've spoken personally to experts about this. It's a problem they quite literally laugh at

    More students are college educated in this country than at any point in the past.


    50 years ago less than half the population even attended college

    Except there is c14 being discovered in significant amounts.

    There are plenty of links on http://kgov.com/c14 that link to places it has been found.

    Sure, more people are being educated, but that's not what I was talking about. I said that it's not at the same standard. In other words, the quality of their education is not as good.

    I know the importance of proper sourcing. Can you please find me a non-Young-Earth-Christian propaganda site that says the same information?

    What is that based on? Why was it better in the past?
