You are using one set of fringe writers to back up what another fringe writer claims.

Might as well ask Pat Robertson about ancient history.

If the above is all you know about C14, it's no wonder you hold a worldview that is utterly incorrect.

Citation?

Otherwise, I can tell you they were all dated by the parasols they held in their trunks.

You have no idea what I know, and you have no idea about what I know. This is obvious since you believe these animals were all flash frozen in some kind of environmental calamity.

So, why don't you check Hancock's source on this? That's what I did and that's how I know it's malarkey.
