What is my "view", Avry? All I did was ask a question about methodology that no one seems to be able to answer.

There's nothing to "admit" other than the obvious lack of proof in the midst of so many claiming it is fact.

I'm being no such thing. All I've done is ask one simple question about Yoshimura's methodology. Why you just couldn't simply have said "I assume it was radiocarbon" the very first time I asked is anyone's guess.

All of which is simply more reflexive hostility in response to one simple question. If you would simply either ignore the question, say you don't know, or offer a simple answer like "I assume it was <whatever>", instead of prolonging the topic with deflective hostility, then I wouldn't try to keep clarifying what I'm asking.
I'll be more careful with what questions I ask you from now on. Sorry my simple questions disturb you so much.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
