Deflection, m'lady. Can you follow what was asked? Philip wondered why the C14 study was brought under scrutiny, and I explained why. Pretty simple.

And what, praytell, is your basis that I don't understand the process? I'd ask you to specifically quote what I might have said that shows unequivocally I do not understand. What a ridiculous thing to say.

While true - your faith in Philip has no bearing on a C14 dating - this is not the problem. The problem is you willfully defer to what he says as being correct without questioning it.

Poke to the forehead, Audrey: I personally raised this exact same discussion on these studies as Philip does here over 17 years ago with individuals more directly involved. After receiving direction, I reassessed my conclusions and saw the error(s). Your obtuse suggestion I need to have more knowledge on the subject is thoughtless and misguided. You, on the other hand, explicitly expressed you have no intention of investigating yourself, nor to listen to any other info because - apparently - Philip has spoken.
Your a googleplex more a piece of work then you assume others are.
