Since coming out of the witnesses, I have gone through a transformation in thought and in mind. I started with the usual: I thought that Jesus was God. Then I investigated more about the Bible and thought that the Bible was not true, given the many contradictions, failed prophecies, etc.
Then I investigated evolution and read lots and now I accept evolution and natural selection as things that are true.
Now, I need to make my dad rethink everything. For evolution, I read a book called "Why evolution is true", full of amazing, well-explained proofs of evolution.
I want your help in getting the proof that there have been humans on this planet for more than 6000 years.
One proof is the Mitochondrial Eve and the Y-chromosomal Adam, but it relies on things that are "invisible" such as genes and gene mutation rates.
Another proof is the artifacts, such as the venuses, the flutes, the paintings...
My question is, how exactly are these things dated?
Is there a website or a place where I can read something like this:
This venus figurine is dated to 15,000 years ago, +/- 2000 years. It was dated using radiocarbon method, luminescence, tree ring count... and all the methods converged to that time, with a confidence of 95%.
