Dima mammoth carbon dating tiscali dating direct
In the introduction to Hovind’s Doctoral Dissertation, he has this to say about the Bible: In the twentieth century the major attack Satan has launched has been against the first eleven chapters of Genesis.
He knows that the entire Bible stands or falls on the validity of these chapters.
The carbon has been filtered down and sometimes dissolved from carbon-based rocks, greatly reducing the carbon-14 content, suggesting that the carbon-14 has had more time to decay and the sample is much older than it actually is.
This is known as the reservoir effect, and is well understood.It’s possible that Hovind knew perfectly well that the information he was presenting was a gross distortion of the facts, and was confident of the probability that none of his target audience would go to the lengths of obtaining the original paper for the purpose of fact-checking.
Evolution shows us that death did not originate with a recently created man and woman, and that lifeforms of all kinds have been dying on this earth for millions of years. If there was no fall, there is no need for a saviour.
If science is reliable and evolution by natural selection is a proven mechanism, there is no basis for the Christian faith at all.
This statement was made by Kent Hovind in response to being told that some of the claims he had made in one of his seminars about the carbon dating of a baby mammoth were wildly inaccurate, and despite having this pointed out to him on previous occasions, he had not yet updated the relevant handouts.
His opinion that this was a minor point due to the fact that he was not asking the taxpayer to fund him suggests to me that as an independently funded ‘educator’, he thinks he can teach whatever he likes, even if it is shown to be dishonest.
Because of this, mankind needed a saviour, and a saviour was provided, in the person of Jesus Christ.Animals who feed on the bottoms of rivers, lakes, and oceans don’t get their carbon from the air as most plants do.The carbon consumed by animals on the bottoms of rivers and lakes is much older than that consumed by animals on land, and that found on the ocean floor is older still.He also claims that different parts of Dima were carbon dated to two different ages. Konstantine Vollosovich (correct spelling) was a Russian geologist who retrieved large portions of a Mammoth from an island near Siberia and brought them to the mainland in 1907.Once again, Hovind quotes the Quaternary paper, but this is a complete fabrication.
Hovind cites the paper he took the information from, but has conveniently omitted the title: “Radiocarbon dating: fictitious results with mollusk shells.” As the title implies, Kieth and Anderson were trying to show that under certain conditions, radiocarbon dating won’t work. Evidence is presented to show that modern mollusk shells from rivers can have anomalous radiocarbon ages, owing mainly to incorporation of inactive (carbon 14-deficient) carbon from humus, probably through the food web, as well as by the pathway of carbon dioxide from humus decay.
