Built my PC over the weekend after slowly purchasing hardware over a couple months and now I am stand still with the EZ Debug LED that has the "boot' LED lit up from the motherboard...There is no display, therefore I can't get into Bios...Many religious people tell me that radioactive carbon dating is wrong, and no information produced that way is reliable. It has been done very carefully, and tested repeatedly against other dating methods like counting tree rings, or historical records.

Is it just because of the problems with claiming that the earth is 6000 years old and that radioactive dating provides strong evidence against this?
I would then ask, what about tree ring data and coral growth ring data that also show a much older earth?
It is too soon to know whether the discovery will seriously upset the estimated dates of events like the arrival of human beings in the Western Hemisphere, scientists said.
But it is already clear that the carbon method of dating will have to be recalibrated and corrected in some cases.
Scientists at the Lamont-Doherty Geological Laboratory of Columbia University at Palisades, N.
Y., reported today in the British journal Nature that some estimates of age based on carbon analyses were wrong by as much as 3,500 years.I have noticed that some people like to link radioactive dating, in a knee jerk fashion, to evolution.However, the theory of evolution existed and was widely accepted in the scientific community well before radioactive dating became available.Radioactive dating just provided a little more detail and strengthened...Radioactive dating just provided a little more detail and strengthened the case a bit, but evolution would still be a viable theory without radioactive dating, just like it was before radioactive dating.Since 1947, scientists have reckoned the ages of many old objects by measuring the amounts of radioactive carbon they contain.
