Why carbon dating is flawed
Join us in the 2018 October school holidays for the Creation Super Conference on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. I spent an hour or more reading through this with my wife. Up until 6 years ago when i met my wife, I just naturaly thought the earth was millions of yrs old. And it would take an amount of money to float a new company to do oil exploration using a creationist approach to geology, money that I would think most Christians would be better spent elsewhere.
4 days, 10 Speakers, full kids program, Youth activities, access to resort facilities and much more! Evidence of very recent or even present formation of oil is consistent with a young earth.

The climate models, far from being melodramatic, may be conservative in the predictions they produce.
For example, here’s a graph of sea level rise: Observed sea level rise since 1970 from tide gauge data (red) and satellite measurements (blue) compared to model projections for 1990-2010 from the IPCC Third Assessment Report (grey band).
It would need to have had a similar geological history to Earth's. My French granny says it is more hygienic to poo in a big hole in the garden, like she did when she was growing up, than it is to go inside. She also said that in olden days, people collected pee and used it to make plants grow better. During the Winter Olympics, TV commentators said it is advantageous for ski jumpers to be light because they will travel further.
But being light is seen as a disadvantage for slopestyle snowboarders. And what effect do the snowboarders' baggy clothes have on performance?
In reality, observed sea level is tracking at the upper range of the model projections.
There are other examples of models being too conservative, rather than alarmist as some portray them.
All models have limits - uncertainties - for they are modelling complex systems.
If a model can correctly predict trends from a starting point somewhere in the past, we could expect it to predict with reasonable certainty what might happen in the future.
So all models are first tested in a process called .
