Carbon 14 dating becomes more accurate and can be used for artifacts 3x as old as previously

"The recalibrated clock won’t force archaeologists to abandon old measurements wholesale, says Bronk Ramsey, but it could help to narrow the window of key events in human history. “If you’re trying to look at archaeological sites at the order of 30,000 or 40,000 years ago, the ages may shift by only a few hundred years but that may be significant in putting them before or after changes in climate,” he says."

This is a tiny excerpt from a great article found here:

It is bad enough theists think we are kitten barbecuers, but now we have to deal with being accused of dating carbon?

The fuzzy 'resolution' of Carbon 14 dating is a favourite side-step of the god people. More accuracy, less drivel.

Way to undermine my cornball humor. If we are going to stablize the population of this planet we need more people commiting suicide after they read my horrible jokes.

Theists, especially the young earth versions, will say this is a lie.

The TMI answer to that is yes, my right hand. It is amazing how you can play with a mouse and keep your prostate healthy at the same time. Low cost and no risk of desease or an 18 year anchor around my neck.

Now when anyone here reading this, including my detractors thinks I am all foamining and ranting all the time, they can at least undersand my co-workers who think after I drop a bad joke on them can sympathize with  their thought "SOMEBODY PLEASE SHOOT HIM!"

Every Sunday is palm Sunday for me. I'd have no sex life if it were not for the internet. And when those with girlfriends or wives say "what is your problem" I respond with, you think I want your problems? Been there done that.
