    You’re welcome.
    I work these things out by plodding trial-and-correction.
    When it works, I save a sample in a word file and cut-paste thereafter.
    Working it out a second time would make my head asplode.

    Well this technique plays into a variety of biases I have. I love small things, I used to make miniaturised timetables for school etc when I was a kid. All by hand. I was quite pleased to get a very sharpened pencil nub, a small cube of eraser rubber and my two-week class schedule into a snuff box (about 1 cm square and 0.5 cm deep). The schedule I had used fine nib pens/pencils to write (legibly) onto two sides of a 0.5cm square card.

    I can see myself getting a little out of control with it. I love things like Rube Goldberg machines. Subtle little tricks, quasi-hidden items.

    Oh well.

    I had indeed followed the example in the first line of chigau’s #501, which gave me exposed text – I tried it out by closing my sentence with a . – but when I hover over my own . of course it just reveals the word “hidden”.

    Firstly, that, in addition to being dismissed from his club, the Hon. Gentleman to whom your missive is directed be deemed “unclubbable” should his unseemly behaviour be perpetrated for more than one standard minute.

    Secondly, that the Hon. Gentleman to whom your missive is directed have his hat taken from his person and rendered inoperable by dint of physical violence.

    Thirdly, and finally, that the Hon. Gentleman to whom your missive is directed be encouraged to Queensland as opposed to New South Wales. After all, it is all the Queen’s land.

    SHOWING ON A SCREEN NEAR YOU.

    I would like to deal with two references first and then ask the evols of evolution to deal with the C14 debate on a question basis.

    The first reference is to a subject that has been dealt with in prior blogs (special note to the the ONE that knows everything). It is a site that has no creationist or religious input, except for the part the Vatican plays in giving evidence of the shroud. As stated before, one of the most studied artefacts, commented on by scientists. Debunks some of the above blogs.

    Reference 01 : The Biggest Radiocarbon Dating Mistake Ever – InnoVal Systems … http://www.innoval.com/C14/

    The second reference is in the same vein as to many questions I would want to pose. Being inundated in the past few days of a feathered T-Rex, camp-fires in caves in South Africa are now 1 million years old (not 700 000, which explains our art at braai-ing), club feet that show homo-erectus could stand up and a radio jock that is heading for a challenge.

    Reference 02 : Problems with Radiometric and Carbon-14 Dating … http://www.specialtyinterests.net/carbon14.html

    Preference being from writing essays and multiple responses, this would theoretically be my first question phrased :

    Question 01 : Can you please explain to me how C14 has maintained a consistency over 40/50/60 thousand years? What changed then to cause an inconsistency in your calculations? If life can come from the lifeless, how can the particular chemicals you require stay constant over billions of years? And in the half life, how is it that that particular chemical is replenished in equalibrium between the 3/4…1/4 phase with no outside influences affecting it? Obviously you can replicate in a lab, solar flares, meteorites, natural disasters, nature itself, the Earths orbit, chemical wear and tear over eons, weather and all the simple facts that we do not have answers for now (not in our life-time), but still have to learn about. So, to simplify the question, how is the one in a trillion parts per million concept across the whole planet accepted as the absolute given accuracy as a constant that has no variables?

    P.S. A quote from reference 01.
    It is the wrong answer because it denies the student a chance to look at the methods, procedures and data, and to learn from the experience.

    Yawn, fuckwitted papers from religious idiots who think they are making inane excuses (ie, lying) for their imaginary deity. Nothing not already seen and refuted by real scientists without any agenda other than that of the truth. And the truth is that the shroud is a medieval fraud, and even the RCC knows that. Anybody who thinks otherwise must presuppose their conclusion rather than base it on the facts. The cloth is medieval in age, the image can be duplicated, and there is nothing about it that shows divine will upon it.

    Nothing but bafflegabble presented by DH. No hard and conclusive physcal evidence in those papers. Typical of liars and bullshitters with nothing but OPINION, which can’t refute the physical evidence, but they must make an effort in any case to protect their omnipotent deity from being seen as powerless. Since your deity doesn’t exist DH, there is no problem with it being seen as powerless. All imaginary things are powerless.

    From your pseudo-scientific linky:

    Oookaaaay…. Suppose for the sake of argument this where true … (I am not saying it is and it would appear clear that the writer/s have a heavenly agenda.) … How the fuck does anyone imagine that this proves anything about jeebus? Do the mummies of the pharoahs (which we happen to know ARE real) somehow manage to prove that Seth or Osiris was real? Would you start believing in Horus if I can date a mummies shroud to the time when religious liars claim he was the only begotten son of YHWH Osiris?

    Where a lot of the conversation has been multi-directional, with stale [billions of years old] comments being posted by the ONE and others, those who can…should. I meant no disrespect to David but was just answering a previous comment. If there is a positive to come from David’s contribution then that would actually add substance. As for the ONE who has feathers now, limited vocabulary and far too many chemicals in him, the ability to read and comprehend is probably still a million years away.

    There has been much said chocolaty about responsive genophyres, but little to support superflecting radial redolence. All evo of evolutionists have ignored the extrinsic functional perturbations of drifting of genetics, for example. You cannot with confidence say your trust in observation adheres to the mousse. In fact, the inference of empiricism disclaims full liability!

    And if you cannot refute that (which I am ascertain you cannot), you must surely remove the penguin from your pocket, and stick it back in a vest and cummerbund with those little tasty-eyed speckles.

    Actually the Shroud of Turin contradicts the Bible. John 20:6-7 says there were two cloths involved:

    Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen.

    Well, I do think that Nerd has a very valid point. You are wasting a lot of energy seeking out old, refuted and rather prejudiced writings wrt carbon dating. Could you present any evidence (either way) wrt the shroud of Turin, that is presented by qualified investigators without an agenda? Surely not everyone on the planet has a horse in this race?

    I will happily believe in your imaginary skygod. The only proviso is that I have sufficient credible evidence to not have to rely on brute belief.

    If the references are ancient [in your world-view], the question is not.

    The problem is that the question has already been answered. Years ago. Long before you were born. If you (or the site to which you linked) had any clue how radiocarbon dating works, it wouldn’t be a question.

    You are relying on websites that intentionally distort reality to fit their religious biases. If you had any interest at all in the truth, rather than in a misrepresentation of the truth that fits your religious beliefs, you’d not fact-search on sites that provide intentionally-incorrect facts (that is, lies).

    As it is, you show no indication you desire to know the truth. You’d rather have convenient lies.

    Perhaps you could expand a bit on what it is you are actually asking. Tyranosaurus rex, along with other maniraptoran and alverezsaurid therapods did have feathers. Campfires are a human invention and date to within the last couple of hundred thousand years (no idea what the current evidence is on this, but you can use Google, danielhaven). The aging system? I have no idea what you mean by this. And yes, there was a time, the Hadean, when the earth was lifeless.

    Oh, lookie, fuckwitted and demented unthinking idjit can’t understand that ANY element with a radioactive isotope can be used for dating. Seems to be unaware that carbon-14 is only used to about 50,000 years old, but then switches over to other elements and isotopes for older ages. Life isn’t needed for for almost all dating, as no carbon is involved. One of the favorite methods of dating is potassium-40/argon-40. This is often used with volcanic tuffs, where the high temperature of the eruption melts the rock, releasing any argon present, and resetting the radiometric clock when the glass solidifies. This can be used to measure above and below layers of sediments or fossils, allowing for a age between the two to represent the age of the sediment or fossils.

    The idjit also thinks that a deeply religious scientist wouldn’t lie to justify their beliefs in the stupornatural. They do, and if publish such ramblings, like the articles the incoherent idjit cited, they are looked down upon and ignored by their peers, as real science is lacking in such papers.

    The efficacy of radiocarbon dating has been proven time and again. It’s not like we just use radiocarbon dating alone. For instance, using tree samples that go back tens of thousands of years (and verifiably so, by matching up ring patterns), we have tested the practicality and accuracy of radiocarbon dating.

    It’s not like these questions have never come up before, DH. RC dating isn’t just something someone pulled out of their ass one day. It’s based on the same physics that produced nuclear power and the atomic bomb. This is stuff we know, and know quite well. It’s not like you’re asking questions about the origins of life. It’s more like you’re questioning the validity of general relativity.

    Serious ratings drop. You post for me or others to read and yet you do not read properly. WRT, this is still a very current discussion amongst scientists. With me, it is not. The point was more that nothing in my faith had been tested scientifically [as claimed by the ONE] and I never wanted to even go down that route,similar to quoting. I have stated my simple disagreement and from that point, many people’s imaginations stretch further than the unending universe.

    The only simple belief a person needs is that there is something more than just me or you.

    If this viewpoint of no accountability here on earth permeates through, how do you not envisage an ending of desolation once the masses decide, “Why must we suffer?”. Then global warming is meaningless, the connected will survive for a while, then the ruthless will survive for a while and then this planet would become lifeless.

    In your scientific thoughts, what makes you think (if there is other life out there), that we were first, we are looking for bacteria but if they were first to form from the big-bang, they fly by us with no contact or are searching for us?

    And when you put your big picture together with my big picture, the purity of science is not the only answer but part of the big picture.

    The only simple belief a person needs is that there is something more than just me or you.

    That you need it :

    1) Does not make it true

    2) Doesn’t mean everybody needs it. I don’t for instance.

    If this viewpoint of no accountability here on earth permeates through, how do you not envisage an ending of desolation once the masses decide, “Why must we suffer?”. Then global warming is meaningless, the connected will survive for a while, then the ruthless will survive for a while and then this planet would become lifeless.

    Still with the childish nihilism of strawmen atheists.

    Why oh why must everything of value to you be forever ? Why must there be more to a universe you have barely glanced at ? It’s like asking for another gift when there’s an untouched pile of them in your living room.

    In your scientific thoughts, what makes you think (if there is other life out there), that we were first, we are looking for bacteria but if they were first to form from the big-bang, they fly by us with no contact or are searching for us?

    Ideas that make you warm, fuzzy and safe inside don’t change reality and might even harm you. The universe doesn’t and cannot care about us. Life is a constant battle that we all eventually lose. It doesn’t make it worthless to me. It makes it precious and unique.

    And when you put your big picture together with my big picture, the purity of science is not the only answer but part of the big picture.

    Your “big picture” simply contains useless noise. Religions don’t add anything to knowledge, morals or happiness. The only thing they manage to do is substract to them.

    The only simple belief a person needs is that there is something more than just me or you.

    That has to be a delusional belief, as there is absolutely no evidence for anything more. Unless you have an eternally burning bush to present…

    If this viewpoint of no accountability here on earth permeates through,

    Accountable to what? You presuppose, but there is no evidence for your delusion, but you keep rambling inanely about it anyway. You lack the accountability that comes with facing reality. Your head is up your ass.

    Then global warming is meaningless, the connected will survive for a while, then the ruthless will survive for a while and then this planet would become lifeless.

    Nothing cogent in this rambling statement of what you think is nihilism. But your inablity to face reality is the real nihilism. Keep your head buried up your ass and take no action to make life a little easier for your grandchildren and beyond.

    And when you put your big picture together with my big picture, the purity of science is not the only answer but part of the big picture.

    What big picture that you have? You have nothing but delusions. YOu aren’t reality based. You have no big picture, just your imaginary deity and mythical/fictional babble. Nothing big about those delusions. They keep you small, and your picture small.

    In your scientific thoughts, what makes you think (if there is other life out there), that we were first, we are looking for bacteria but if they were first to form from the big-bang, they fly by us with no contact or are searching for us?

    Is there life elsewhere in the universe? Almost a certainty. Nothing remarkable about the Earth, except maybe the lack of super nova in the neighborhood. Are they doing something similar to our Project SETI? Most likely, if they are sufficiently advanced. But you haven’t been listening to the reality of interstellar travel. Given the distances and energy requirements, the likelyhood of any travel to other solar systems is almost impossible. There might be some type of science fiction drive that would allow for FTL travel, but, like you say, if it were there, they would be here.

    Two twin dinosaurs are born 75 million years ago, one male and one female. The female is sickly and suffers from colic, eats very little, lies in the cave and sleeps lots. The male eats everything within sight, walks to the next feeding point and sleeps a lot. They both die/flattened/frozen/specially kept for records at the same time. How close would you date them?

The so-called schlock movie director’s have no clue or the people giving them information to make their movies factual to make the movie accurate have no clue? And guess what, tomorrow it could be fur and not feathers. Or, which I would have gone with was a variation of species, some had feathers and some had scales and some had whatever. It is not science that is wrong but the image of science portrayed.

    While there is a huge majority of accuracy in science, this “may, leads back to, hindsight, probable, theory, possible, only, probable, wannabees” and much more of Oxford, the so-called FINDINGS and RE-INTERPRETATIONS do lead to new discoveries but does not make certain theories/assumptions FACT.

    Hardly. My “belief” is based on our best knowledge, based on our most precise observations. My “belief” is fungible, in that if I am wrong in the specifics, there is something with equal or greater explanatory power to take its place. The best knowledge I have may be replaced by observation.

    Your beliefs are based not on observation, but on faith. This is at odds with reality, in that it is not based on reality, but mythology and wishful thinking. I can demonstrate where your mythology deviates from observed reality, but you’ve shown you don’t give a fuck. You’d rather follow your mythology than observed reality.

    No, my delusional friend. My privilege of belief is not the same as yours. I am privileged with knowledge gained through observation and logic. You are privileged with faith garnered through generations of theocratic control. Our situations are not in any way similar.

    We don’t have to know everything to know certain things. To assume absolute knowledge is necessary for understanding is unrealistic, even insane.

I don’t have to know the paths of all asteroids to know I am most likely not going to be killed by a meteor tomorrow. I can also be quite positive I would die if I jumped off a tall building, without knowing the subtleties of general relativity.

    Those killed and tortured for challenging the interpretations of natural phenomena given in holy books might beg to differ. You may also want to familiarise yourself with the period immediately following Christianity becoming the state religion in the Roman Empire in the 4th century. It lasted for 1000 years, when St Augustine declared that all we need to know about nature is in the Bible, and it is called the Dark Ages for a reason. Thankfully humans are curious creatures, and you can only watch a boat sail disappear on the horizon so often before you ask yourself whether the earth really can be flat.

    Yip, still waiting for the Athiests guide to Morals…..

    Are the gods (in your case the bloodthirsty YHWH) laws moral because they happen to say so, or do we judge them moral from a humanist (ie not goddist) perspective? How can we say that YHWH gives moral guidance without knowing what morality is? YHWH gives instructions for murdering people who work on a sunday (that includes you by the way) and for killing upstart teenagers who give their parents lip. In what way are these instructions moral?

    Atheists tend to follow humanist values when it comes to morals. (So do a lot of well meaning xtians. They seem rather blind to the contradiction that arises though.)

    Ubuntu … there is also the realty of a crime riddled world.

    In what way does the philosophy of Ubuntu lead to crime? Should we not rather say that antisocial behaviour occures in spite of the calls to social consciousness and mutual respect.

    Christianity does not undermine Mathematics or Science. That is your delusion.

    We have had the recent case in South Africa (on TZT nogal) of a teacher losing her job for trying to teach science in school. How can the xtian attack on science education not undermine mathematics and science? (Hint: No science education ==> no more scientists in future. This is what many xtians are trying to achieve.)

    I am not too concerned, I am very comfortable with my faith.

    Still waiting for something other than OPINION from the delusional and incoherent fuckwit. Your OPINION DH is not that of an expert giving testament, but rather that of a confused idjit mewling his ignorance to the world, and expecting to be applauded as giving cogent, rather than incoherent, explanations.

    You haven’t refuted ANY science, which requires more science. That is done by citing the peer reviewed scientific literature. In fact, the only literature you cited was fuckwitted scientists who had to believe the medieval shroud of Turin is real, and corrupted real science and diminished their reputations to zero in a vain attempt to excuse the fact the shroud is proven fake.

    You haven’t caused any doubt on radiometric dating or even carbon dating. Your skepticism and OPINION on the subject is irrelevant to science, and your testament is not evidence. Evidence comes from the peer reviewed scientific literature, not your mouth. Science doesn’t give a flying fuck about you and your inane and incoherent OPINIONS. You failed in demonstrating anything other than you will lie and bullshit for your delusional unevidenced beliefs. Typical and sad specimen. Arrogant and egotistical beyond belief, and stopped learning due to terminal religious stupidity. And you think the world wants to hear from you. The world wants you to shut the fuck up as you bore it to death with insipid verbiage.

    What a load of blerry utter rubbish. The teacher story has nothing to do with science but rather the drivel your famous Charle thought up, without observation or experimentation.

    O.K. then, what is the humanist moral list as purported by the evols of evolution? I would believe from previous postings that every scientist is honest except for those who they have a pre-conceived idea by the evols of having a hidden religious agenda as being well in your top ten.

    As for my children and grand-children, the choice is purely teirs, the same as the choice was purely mine.

    As for again twisting ubuntu and crime, it’s no wonder some have doubts.

    TO John Morales

    Here you were put on a pedestal, and you come up with maths and science undermines christianity. Your belief is from nothing or a dot smaller than the period on your screen, billions of years, perfect timing, you are just here to add to the next layer.

    Oh, and enforce a theory, hypotheses, thought from a so-called intelligent base labelling others as ignorant. Or as some do, pretend superiority and write gibberish.

    TO rorschach

    Should not speak to yourself like that.

    As with everything, perfection is unatainable. There are people who abuse whatever system they pretend to represent whether it be religion, science, government, cops, teachers, accountants, bankers, lawyers, judges, should I go on?

    TO Nerd of Redhead

    I have stated, you choose to ignore. I have asked and you choose to ignore.I have cited peer reviewed literature and you choose to ignore.

    Seeing as you dig the lab so much, what is the replenish rate of C14 in the atmosphere over thousands of years?

    My testament is not evidence to you but it is testament to why I have the faith. It really is a personal thing and I do not need peer review to acknowledge that I have faith in my beliefs.

    Do not know what school/uvi you went to but I was never taught religion/christianity in my maths or science classes.

    What a load of blerry utter rubbish.

    Er…I think the title speaks for itself: Religion forces science teacher to quit

    Did you ever even read the article? Come to mention it … did you ever even read the fucking bible (cover to cover) in the first place?

    .I have cited peer reviewed literature and you choose to ignore.

    I had seen those papers ripped apart, as they should be, in Skeptical Inquirer years ago. You have the idea that all peer reviewed papers are equal. They aren’t. There is trash, and those papers you cited were trash.

    what is the humanist moral list as purported by the evols of evolution?

    This is totally and utterly incoherent. Evolution doesn’t have a morals, but animals who cooperate tend to more successful than those who are selfish. Humans just wrote it down tribal morals when writing was invented. Throw it into a book of mythology/fiction that describes an imaginary deity, and idjits like you think “god given” morals, rather than the tribal morals at the time the book was written.

    Seeing as you dig the lab so much, what is the replenish rate of C14 in the atmosphere over thousands of years?

    Simple, Google and Wiki say how much is in the biosphere, but the rate is dependent on a number of factors, which is true. But then, you are hung up on a dating method that isn’t used that much, and is very reliable, as it is highly calibrated from tree ring and other data. And you haven’t refuted it with scientific evidence, just OPINION, which is worthless.

    but it is testament to why I have the faith. It really is a personal thing

    Then why are you continually blabbering your personal faith like it is something worthwhile, meaningful, and required for human experience? It is none of that, just your statement that you are a delusional fool, as you believe without evidence.

    Your OPINION is meaningless. You don’t cite the real scientific literature. You are arrogant and egotistical to think your delusional OPINION isn’t trash.

    ONCE YOU TRASH YOUR PEERS AND CALL THEIR SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE TRASH THAT SHOULD BE RIPPED UP, YOU PRETTY MUCH HAVE ENDED ANY AND ALL CONVERSATION.

    DH666: There is no credible scientific evidence for your god. That’s it, end of story. Now go read something sciency to educate yourself.

    @ Nerd

    I think that DH666 does not have a working definition of what science actually is. He seems to think that it is an opinion. He seems to think that it is his opinion being measured against your opinion.

    *sigh*

    I have tried previously to point out that the most elementary day-to-day technology – the very stuff he is using right now, such as the internet , cell phone or car – is at odds with the crap in the babble. He choses instead to go completely out of his depth (perhaps under the mistaken belief that you (we) are equally out of our depth).

    *sigh*
