A life span exceeding 7,000 years for a specimen of this species is doubtful.

An asterisk ( * ) by a name indicates that person is not known to be a creationist. "Well authenticated dates are known only back as far as about 1600 B. "There are two basic assumptions in the radiocarbon method.

Of over 4,000 quotations in the books this Encyclopedia is based on, only 164 statements are by creationists. One is that the carbon 14 concentration in the carbon dioxide cycle is constant.

At normal [present] growth rates, between 500-2,000 solar years would be required for the development of an eighteen-inch peat layer.

"Muscle tissue from beneath the scalp of a mummified musk ox found in frozen muck at Fairbanks Creek, Alaska, has a radiocarbon age of 24,000, while the radiocarbon age of hair from a hind limb of the carcass is 17,200.

By contrast, this revised approach has the effect of `compressing' radiocarbon time,' and speeding up the rate of man's cultural development."—Erich A.

Few archaeologists who have concerned themselves with absolute chronology are innocent of having sometimes applied this method. ." In spite of its flaws, it is far more accurate than radiodating. In other words, the whole picture is now consistent with the non-equilibrium model. C., there are no suitable [historically dateable] materials for calibration purposes, and so it is not possible to trace the curve back further in time . "Conventional C-14 calibration has the effect of `stretching out' radiocarbon time and slowing down, for example, the rate of man's cultural development.If you’re a member of the 31 percent of Americans who’ve tested the waters of online dating, haven’t you at least wondered how you stack up against the competition? The second-most-popular online dating site, for which statistical pseudo-sociology has become something of a pastime, they cross-examined data from thousands of users to try and determine what kind of women most men find attractive—and which women are attractive enough for men to actually contact. If you have a weird snaggletooth, play it up: statistically, the guys who don't like it can only help you, and the ones who do like it will be all the more excited.” Now before we continue, a disclaimer: none of this is science, which OK Cupid will readily admit.Using the profiles of 43,000 heterosexual women in their 20s, OK Cupid tallied profile ratings (suitors can give each other profile scores from 1 to 5, used only for internal tracking) and compared them with the number of messages these women had received from men in the previous month. That the more men as a group disagree about a woman’s looks, the more they end up liking her; that guys tend to ignore girls widely-considered to be attractive and opt for women who had less consistent ratings; that having some men think you’re ugly actually works in a woman’s favor (in terms of the number of messages she gets). “We now have mathematical evidence that minimizing your ‘flaws’ is the opposite of what you should do,” writes the site’s editorial director and co-founder, Christian Rudder. And this particular study—which looks only at male attitudes toward women—is of course glaringly one-sided. We learned rather abruptly that these numbers, these ancient ages, are not known; in fact, it is about the time of the first dynasty in Egypt that the last [earliest] historical date of any real certainty has been established."—*W. Libby, "Radiocarbon Dating," in American Scientist, January 1956, p. [Libby was the one who pioneered the discovery of Carbon ! "It may come as a shock to some, but fewer than 50 percent of the radiocarbon dates from geological and archaeological samples in northeastern North America have been adopted as `acceptable' by investigators."—*J. In the Proceedings of the Symposium on Radiocarbon Variations and Absolute Chronology held at Uppsala in 1969, T. A famous American colleague, Professor Brew, briefly summarized a common attitude among archaeologists towards it, as follows: If a C-14 date supports our theories, we put it in the main text. Arnold and I had was that our advisors informed us that history extended back only 5,000 years . You read books and find statements that such and such a society or archaeological site is [said to be] 20,000 years old. Olsson introduce their report with these words: "C-14 dating was being discussed at a symposium on the prehistory of the Nile Valley. "[b] Only three of the 15,000 reported ages are listed as `infinite.' "[c] Some samples of coal, oil, and natural gas, all supposedly many millions of years old have radiocarbon ages of less than 50,000 years.
