Scientific principles learned in the Bible have led to countless scientific discoveries and saved millions of lives. It’s true. Without the Bible, we would never have the blessings of modern science...

A much more valuable and ongoing sets of comparison have been carried out on a great many DIFFERENT kinds of reliable age indicators, such as tree rings. C-14 methods correlate remarkably well. (Comparisons with recently deceased animals would be pointless. Carbon 14 dating is not use on some animal that died a few months ago. It is used over periods of many centuries and millenia.)

Let's be honest with ourselves. Carbon-14 and other radiometric dating methods (and the great many NON-radiometric dating methods) all harmonize well and are remarkably useful. The ONLY people who doubt them have sectarian reasons for doing so. Indeed, I was once one of them. Because my church doubted them, I doubted them. That was my only reason. Yes, I could find websites written by people with similar Biblical reasons for doubting the facts and I felt reaffirmed by them. But that is not how evidence is examined. We can't reject data just because we dislike the implications for our worldview.

Happily, I found eventually that God's creation poses no conflict with God's Bible. The conflicts are when man-made traditions insists that the Bible MUST say what the tradition wants it to say.
