Scientific arguments against carbon dating
When there is an archaeological find, earth has to be carefully removed to expose buried artefacts or building structures.Excluding nearby volcanic disasters, what causes a site to fill up with rubble and debris over time? • Your correspondent will find Charles Darwin’s book about earthworms, On the Formation of […] In the search for extraterrestrial life, we look for planets at a similar distance from their sun as Earth is from ours: the so-called Goldilocks zone.Shakespeare took something familiar to him, a clock that strikes the hours, and placed it in his story before such clocks existed.Because the play is fictional, it is seen as simply an error on Shakespeare's part.
Given constant encouragement from general and local leaders of reliance on supernatural manifestations (a testimony) over testable claims, it is not surprising that many faithful Latter-Day Saints seem unfazed by empirical evidence (or the lack of it) contradicting Book of Mormon claims, whether the research is conducted by Mormon or non-Mormon archaeologists and historians.The other came much earlier when the Lord confounded the tongues at the Tower of Babel. After thousands of years, all were destroyed except the Lamanites, and they are the principal ancestors of the American Indians." of the BOM say all of the people chronicled in the book were destroyed, except the Lamanites, and they are the principal ancestors of the American Indians." The new introduction reads much the same, but says the Lamanites are among the ancestors of the American Indians causing some debate.Concerning this record the Prophet Joseph Smith said: "I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book." Latter-day Saints are repeatedly encouraged to rely on a witness of the spirit (i.e.29) that actively discouraged members from studying the historicity of the Book of Mormon because such efforts would prove "fruitless," that differing theories regarding Book of Mormon geography would "undermine faith" and that any theories put forth by scholars were nothing more than "personal speculations." LDS critics maintain that the BOM is a work of fiction created in the 19th century.Critics do not accept that the BOM relates an actual history of real people who came to the Americas and were steel-smelting, chariot-driving, Christ-worshipping, temple-building people multiplying into millions, yet left absolutely no trace of their existence.
