1. Chapter 4 Scientific ? Radiocarbon Dating [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS 118 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. VI, Nos. 1, 2, 3 CHAPTER 4 SCIENTIFIC ? RADIOCARBON DATING "I mistrust laboratory methods because what happens in a laboratory is contrived and dictated. The evidence is manufactured; the cases are what reporters call frame-ups. If the evidence is unexpected or unaccountable it is re-manufactured until it proves what the laboratory controller wants it to prove." George Bernard Shaw quoted in Robert Youngson, Scientific Blunders (NY 1998) p. 173 ". . . material is often submitted for [radiocarbon] dating in the spirit of adding scientific precision to the archaeologists' pre-existing beliefs." R. Hedges, quoted in David M. Rohl ...
2. Calibrated Radiocarbon and the 'Methodological Fault-Line' [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1991 (Vol XIII) Home | Issue Contents Calibrated Radiocarbon and the Methodological Fault-Line'by Bernard Newgrosh As long ago as 1979 the distinguished pre-historian James Mellaart tried to propose a stretched history to accommodate the results of calibrated radiocarbon dating [1 ]. He was criticised by J. Weinstein [2 ] and B. J. Kemp [3 ] and withdrew his proposals [4 ] and the exercise was not repeated. But the problem for pre-historians remains: in the third millennium BC and earlier the application of calibrated radiocarbon dates causes horrible problems for chronology. Thus F. Hole, writing in 1987, summarised the 8000-6000 BP period ...
3. Radiocarbon Dating The Extinction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 3 No 2&3 (1997) Home | Issue Contents Radiocarbon Dating The Extinction Charles Ginenthal Radiocarbon dating is the final support, and only support for the contention of the age of the extinction. As Haynes says, "According to radiocarbon dates, a proboscidean crisis occurred 10,000 to 12,000 years ago, the interval when mammoths and mastodonts disappeared from the world."1 But he also admits that "some would say they disappeared later."2 This later extinction possibility Haynes and the other uniformitarians are clearly unwilling to examine presently or admit openly. To drop this 10,000 year extinction date would destroy both the ...
4. Radiocarbon Dating and Velikovskian Catastrophism [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 2: (Spring-Summer 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered IV" Home | Issue Contents Radiocarbon Dating and Velikovskian Catastrophism Thomas Mowles Evidence supporting Worlds in Collision' Thomas Mowles is an engineer, Inorganic Materials Research Division, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, Berkeley, California. 1. INTRODUCTION In Worlds in Collision Velikovsky proposed a physical, catastrophic hypothesis based primarily upon historical evidences (1 ). Scientists, however, will not accept such a hypothesis unless the physical evidence is compelling, and historians are not likely to interpret their own data in opposition to the "laws of science." Nor will purely theoretical models carry much weight in supporting so revolutionary ...
5. Radiocarbon Dating and Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol VI No 1-3 (1982) "The 1978 Glasgow Conference Proceedings" Home | Issue Contents Radiocarbon Dating and Egyptian Chronology Dr Euan Mackie I don't regard myself as an expert in ancient Egypt or the ancient Near East - or even, really, in radiocarbon dating, but as a practising archaeologist I have to use radiocarbon dates in this remote northern region far from the centres of early civilisation in the Mediterranean and the Near East, and therefore, like everyone who works up here, beyond the range of direct links with Egypt and Greece, I have to be familiar with C14, its limitations and its benefits [1 ]. It occurred to ...
6. Radiocarbon Dating: An Archaeological Perspective [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1992 No 1 (Aug 1992) Home | Issue Contents REVIEWS Radiocarbon Dating: An Archaeological Perspective by R. E. Taylor, (London: Academic Press, 1987) Anyone concerned with ancient history and chronologies cannot ignore radiocarbon dating results. Unfortunately, the technical nature of the subject causes misunderstanding among scholars and archaeologists about how radiocarbon dating is accomplished and the meaning and limitations of radiocarbon measurements. Indeed, as was recently observed by Bowman and Balaam in Antiquity 64 (1990), pp. 315-318: The way in which radiocarbon results are used varies tremendously. There is a lamentable tendency to ignore or play down the importance of ...
7. The present state of Radiocarbon Dating [Articles]
... Annual General Meeting of the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies The present state of Radiocarbon Dating Nick Thorpe held at the Library Association on 14th September 1986 Morning session Nick Thorpe's comments during his slide show on some of the sites that will be visited during the Megalithic Tour, and his talk on Radiocarbon Dating Peter James, introducing Nick Thorpe: He is in the Department of Anthropology at University College, although he is basically an archaeologist. He is working largely on the Late Bronze Age prehistoric cultures of Great Britain such as the Wessex Culture, and through that has become interested in questions of radiocarbon dating. He has done a lot of work on re-dating the Wessex Culture by the rather ...
8. The Radiocarbon Dating Method [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 2: (Spring-Summer 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered IV" Home | Issue Contents The Radiocarbon Dating Method W. F. Libby A state of the method' report, by its inventor Professor Libby received the Nobel Prize in 1960 for his work in developing the radiocarbon dating method.

9. Thera: Chronology at a Crossroads? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... dated to 1500 BC. This dating, it must be stressed, is purely an archaeological one. As its basis we find the dating of Mycenaean pottery in Egyptian New Kingdom contexts, and through the dating of Mycenaean wares the pottery style chronologies of the Late Minoan I and Late Cycladic I sequences are determined. In the early years of radiocarbon dating this archaeological date appeared to be confirmed: radiocarbon estimations were performed on material from the Thera eruption levels and dates of around 1500 BC were obtained [1 ]. The confirmation afforded by the radiocarbon dates was independent of the pottery style chronology, and archaeologists were happy to accept it. A later confirmation was offered by the ice ...
