Topics: Creationists; What is your argument against carbon dating, etc?

P eople who ask about carbon-14 ( 14 C) dating usually want to know about the radiometric [1] dating methods that are claimed to give millions and billions of years—carbon dating can only give thousands of years. People wonder how millions of years could be squeezed into the biblical account of history.

Clearly, such huge time periods cannot be fitted into the Bible without compromising what the Bible says about the goodness of God and the origin of sin, death and suffering —the reason Jesus came into the world (See Six Days? Honestly! ).

This only makes sense with a time-line beginning with the creation week thousands of years ago. It makes no sense at all if man appeared at the end of billions of years.

You COULD bring an end to the cycle: provide evidence. No more arguments, no more atheists; you"d be famous too

Are you invoking DNA and genetics? Because if you invoke genetics it applies to all the arguments

2 things happened here: 1/2 I’ve shown every one of your arguments are garbage and unsubstantiated and 2/2 You know believe in Jesus. Wow it’s a good day

Those emojis really help your arguments.

Bad faith arguments are what they breathe out instead of carbon dioxide.

These are the strawman arguments I just stated earlier. Someone who doesn’t study scripture shouldn’t debate scripture.

Hersesy is denying the word of God, and the word of God is much more reliably expressed in the natural world as it’s revealed through reason and science than in what I have heard described wonderfully as “the giant book of Jewish fairy stories” Iain Banks arguments
