At the risk of starting an enormous hullabaloo…(please be gentle!)…
First, I found this to be tremendously interesting. I don’t know if I believe it. It has enough facts and many details that should be verifiable or refutable—but I haven’t done the work to find out. So I can’t present it as a claim to truth, only as an intriguing account.
I debated about sharing this, because it describes a conspiracy. There is such a thing as a real conspiracy, and there are also ones that are legendary leaps (more like convolutions or contortions) of logic and/or rational thinking. I tend to go instantly skeptical on claims that fit that description (conspiracy). So don’t take this too seriously, please. If this isn’t true, it is a fun fictional work to fill in holes and present an alternative reason for the C-14 testing. If it IS true, whoa. Just: woah!
I’d love to see what people think about the test results from the individual labs! That must be verifiable!
In your responses, please remember that I am simply presenting this for consideration. If you can refute or confirm the claims scientifically or historically, I would LOVE to hear it!
(But I would prefer not to hear accusations about my intelligence for posting this, or adjectives towards anyone who believes this, etc. Think of it as a thought experiment or an investigation…it’s not personal!)
