What's really shocking, in my opinion, is that Libby's first real tests were done using Egyptian artifacts. Artifacts that the Egyptologists gave him, along with the dates they had established by historic record (context) and these were the target dates used to validate the first RCD tests! That seems ass-backwards to me. From there it went on to calibrations and curves to correct the RCD 'errors' and bring the tests results more in line with the 'historic' dates. And to top it all off, even before the advent of RCD, Egyptology's dates had become the backbone, the skeleton by which all of the history of the East was dated. Something found in Iraq was linked to an elbow, an Egyptian event and dated accordingly. If it can't be linked to an Egyptian pharaoh or event, they're pretty much stuck without a date. If Egyptology's dates tumble, so do most of the dates assigned to all of Eastern history. Which is probably why, I suspect, Egyptologists are adamant that their dates, established long ago, remain intact.
I've always thought science tests were essentially blind tests, independent of the popular consensus. If you have a group like Egyptology saying NO, your tests are wrong and we are right, how will science ever be able to contribute to this retarded field of study.
