What I'll never understand is why conservatives grant interviews to idiotic liberal journalists. Be that as it may, radio carbon dating analysis is incredibly flawed. For example, living mollusks were pulled from the ocean and the shells dated using Carbon-14 analysis. The test showed the mollusks had been dead for 2000 years! Just as with macro-evolutionists and global warming alarmists, the old earth people are irrationally driven by their hatred for God.

Matt,

Mollusks, unlike plants living in the atmosphere, get their C-14 from ancient carbonate which has already decayed significantly in C-14 terms. Therefore, they are not suitable for carbon dating. Carbon dating is simply not appropriate to use on everything. That does not mean that carbon dating does not work.

Carbon dating also has nothing to do with calculating the age of the earth. There's way too much uniformed arrogance here.

Carbon dating is not used to calculate the age of rocks. Carbon dating is only used to calculate the age of something that was once alive - a carbon based life form.

That has nothing to do with dating the age of the earth - which is the subject of the article.

And they control the media. Which the dumbmasses believe.

Let the Blood Games continue.

Only weeks after election 2012 and years before election 2016, in a routine interview, a glossy pop magazine popped Florida Senator Marco Rubio with an oddball question: How old do you think the earth is? Rubio responded a bit clumsily and noncommittally. Smelling blood and opportunity, the wolf pack bared fangs and chased.

Their game is either to force Rubio to affirm a personal belief the earth is 4.5 billion years old—disturbing some of his religious supporters--or to mock and stigmatize him and others who could harbor any delusional...
