The radiocarbon method was developed by a team of scientists led by the late Professor Willard F.

We use every opportunity in our classrooms to encourage curiosity, propose hypotheses, construct scientifically valid tests for hypotheses, and nurture critical thinking skills.
We teach our students the tools needed to create hypothetical answers to new questions, to “make an educated guess.” Our laboratories emphasize hands-on experiments or manipulations which demonstrate principles presented in lecture.
Our curriculum is organized around these shared values.
magazine has been continuously published since 1978, we are publishing some of the articles from the archives for historical interest, such as this.
Radiometric Dating Technologies are presented to the public by evolutionists as utterly reliable clocks for dating earth rocks or biological materials.
"Everything which has come down to us from heathendom is wrapped in a thick fog; it belongs to a space of time we cannot measure.
We know that it is older than Christendom, but whether by a couple of years or a couple of centuries, or even by more than a millenium, we can do no more than guess." [Rasmus Nyerup, (Danish antiquarian), 1802 (in Trigger, 19)].
Desmond Clark (1979) wrote that were it not for radiocarbon dating, "we would still be foundering in a sea of imprecisions sometime bred of inspired guesswork but more often of imaginative speculation" (Clark, 1979:7).
Writing of the European Upper Palaeolithic, Movius (1960) concluded that "time alone is the lens that can throw it into focus".
