Grey Thoughts
Carbon Dating Reliability
Creation Safari's has an interesting report about an article in nature on dating.
In the Sept 14 issue, there was a give & take between critics of a carbon-14-dated study and the author. The critics pointed out, “We appreciate that Mellars’ review was restricted to radiocarbon dating, principally of bone, but it is recommended practice that multiple methods and materials should be investigated to avoid any possible pitfalls that might be associated with a single technique or sample type.” They decried the need for “much-needed rigour to radiocarbon chronologies.”
Only using radiocarbon dating to date something could have 'pitfalls'. I guess it isn't as reliable and bullet proof as some try to claim.
