cofty: Interesting how one little animal made you change your post. ALMOST. See, like science, and your post, it is as only as good as the one interperting data available., or the one PAYING to have it changed. Viruses are mutating, and vaccines that once worked no longer work. THE SCIENCE HAS TO CHANGE!!!..
Your statement regarding the fossil record being predictable on mountain tops can also be toppled. But I choose not to do that, for you see, I already did that.. Remember I said I am a experimental archaeologist and have been for 25 years.
Not one time has any poster ( perhaps I did miss it) mention the water canopy above the earth. Now, before anyone says," NO PROOF" science has discovered other planets in our own galaxy that do have water canopies, and also have proof planets do vibrate and put off a harmonic. Like I said Cofty, I do love science.
Back to the water canopy. If you believe the flood account or not, I dont care. But If such a canopy did exist (as the Bible states) and in one day it collapsed and the outerspace radiation entered the earths atmosphere then radiocarbon dating is flawed. Example to think about. When an item has been sitting on the ocean floor for centuries, what happens when it reaches the surface? Correct, it immediately starts to deteriorate and disintigrates. That is why said item is captured with the water it is found in. You do not have to be a scientist to comprehend this FACT!!!!!
Every arguement regarding the flood I have come across, this point is overlooked. HOW MUCH did the flood of radiation change how we read or interpret said readings. Fact: even volcanos can change radiocarbon dating. That is WHY scientist have to keep finding better ways to accurately age the planet and other items, because even they know they are not accurate.
