Mr.H,

You are correct,I will make a list.

It was the first step in a self imposed gag order.I am guilty of pwp (posting while plastered).
I found myself denigrating the integrety of my own
board.And was laying an excape plan.

....Can you explain carbon dating in some detail?
I understand c-14 is absorbed by anything which requires air.And is accumulated in the "body" of whatever absorbes it.Also I am lead to believe that only about 14 pounds of it exists on this planit...Low
numbers.Then when the subject dies (stops absorbing)
resediual c-14 decays on a known 1/2 life.How can we be
sure that the samples are not contaminated? Such as an
animal urinating on a future sample?And why are the dates different for the same samples given multiple tests in the same or different labs?

Chris
