Carbon dating inacurate
It is a technique that can yield absolute dates with accuracy up to approximately 5000 years before present.However its application has caused extreme confusion and misunderstanding of the archaeological record.To add a touch of justification to this, let’s break it down.We know the Bible is inaccurate, in fact the Bible is contradictory within its own pages.The very top estimate would be close to 10,000 years, but that’s a stretch.Science has proven that the earth is closer to 4.5 billion years old.
You also have to question to environment on board Noah’s Ark, an environment that could sustain animals that require intense heat and animals that require intense cold, as well as Noah and his family that required a more moderate climate. Just so we’re clear, I’m establishing that that the Bible is inaccurate. There are more examples of course, some which make it clear that the author of the Bible thinks the world is flat, some which make it clear that the author thought the world did not move and then there are more considered examples, such as the value of pi being unknown at the time (surely God would have known it!?! So this is my statement, logically derived from the above.After the suggestion in one of this site’s comments stating that it required more faith to be an atheist than a theist, because the non-existence of a deity can never be proven, I thought it would be fun to see if we can logically disprove the existence of “God”. For this to work, we have to agree on the following two statements, and accept that Christians believe them to the true: – These aren’t outrageous statements, and in fact, have been echoed on this very blog numerous times in the comments.I picked the Christian God because I am more familiar with the Christian faith than any other, I’ve read the bible and have previously lived with devout Christians. The two statements above are clearly interdependent.I can understand man rounding down the value of pi, for example, but to get the entire creation story wrong is a bit of a stretch.Likewise, given that God is all powerful, he surely would not have left an obviously inaccurate account of his greatest work go to press, or was that just another sign of his fallibility?
