[quote=elvisman]Ahhh, but now YOU’RE basing all of your “facts” about the fossil record on the Carbon 14 dating method. This method has been taught by many in the scientific world as being ***heavily ***flawed.
For example, live mollusks have been dated as being several hundreds-of-thousand of years old. Implausible? Yes - ridiculously so.
Neither am I touting a “young earth”. I’m simply saying that if somebody wants to play Devil’s advocate as far as the age of the earth is concerned - OR whether or not Adam and Eve actually existed (which is what my original discourse was about) - then your allegiance to current dating methods are nothing but a blind faith in science.
Nice try, though . . . .

I can’t see why you accuse me of blind faith in science. I have blind faith only in God (and that’s not really “blind,” per se).
Trying to dismantle C-14 dating is not the best use of time. Sungenis as a 6 day relatively-young Earth creationist leaves much unexplained. There are radiometric techniques as well. I hesitate to think that all the hominids, fossils, and date ranges given in the last century are all falsehoods propogated by an irreligious secular science establishment (though stranger things have happened).
