  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    quote duke.edu:

    Remembering that the half-life of carbon-14 is 5700 years, then after 5700 years half as much carbon-14 remains within the organism.

    That's problem #1. If C14 levels were lower 5,000 years ago, then anything that was buried 5,000 years ago will have an apparent date that is much older. C14 production is affected by many things, including even the strength of the earth's magnetic field.

    But no matter how much was in the atmosphere at the time (no matter how much you start with), C14 still only has a limited lifetime. After that, you shouldn't be able to detect any C14 in the sample.

      Of course, thanks to using C14 to date things of known age, and little things like "Ice Core samples", we know how what C14 levels were ranging all the way back to the end of the C14 usefullness.

       In Nick's Bizarro World, scientists don't think of things like this, and if they do, they certainly don't work on dealing with it.

    That's what they assert too.

    Yet they give no reference as to why it should be so. In addition, they were forced to do a test on something that should not have been tested that way. I wonder how it would look if they did the proper test. Hmmm?
