Carbon dating myth
It is for this reason that I’m writing you today, to formally request that this alternative theory be taught in your schools, along with the other two theories.
In fact, I will go so far as to say, if you do not agree to do this, we will be forced to proceed with legal action. If the Intelligent Design theory is not based on faith, but instead another scientific theory, as is claimed, then you must also allow our theory to be taught, as it is also based on science, not on faith.
It was He who created all that we see and all that we feel.
We feel strongly that the overwhelming scientific evidence pointing towards evolutionary processes is nothing but a coincidence, put in place by Him.
I think we can all agree that it is important for students to hear multiple viewpoints so they can choose for themselves the theory that makes the most sense to them.
I am concerned, however, that students will only hear one theory of Intelligent Design.
Some find that hard to believe, so it may be helpful to tell you a little more about our beliefs.
In the 1990′s the classic Vostok ice core graph showed temperature and carbon in lock step moving at the same time.
What follows is the complete set from 420,000 years to 5,000 years before the present.But there are also things that are known to be false that are often taken as true, and of such things it is said: “If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself.” One of these urban legends is the idea that the texts or the cartonnage of the Nag Hammadi Library codices have been examined with C-14 radiometric dating. Day Brown wrote (August 3, 2001): This is not even the same century as the one usually credited for the Nag Hammadi Library (the fourth century), let alone accurate information regarding the Carbon 14 dating of the Nag Hammadi codices. Brown himself as a consideration; it is used in reply to another person, who challenges P. The legend was soon to take on more particular shape. 2) The recent GJudas – dated 280 CE ( /- 60 years) Six weeks later, the date had morphed to “350 CE” and the material said to have been dated is connected with the Gospel of Thomas in the re-telling of the legend, along with the first use of the word “citation” in this connection, albeit without any actual citations (July 26, 2006): By my research to date however, there appears to be only two actual carbon dating citations with respect to the new testament texts.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 bottom line is that rising temperatures cause carbon levels to rise.Carbon may still influence temperatures, but these ice cores are neutral on that. Some other factor is more important than carbon dioxide, or carbon’s role is minor.
