Dinosaur bones are supposed to be around 65 million years old, right? But what happens if you date them using carbon-14 dating, which is theoretically useful for dating organic materials that are much younger, having died up to 50,000 years ago? This should be a no-brainer, right?
If you only read the news headlines and the stories that go with them, you would be led to believe that scientists have found the oldest cave paintings in the world in Spain. But you would be misled if you believe the articles.
Spanish cave art, assumed to be very old based on unprovable presuppositions.
What is Christian Eschatology? In short, it is a belief system about what the end of time will be like. It has to do with Christ’s Second Coming — when will He come back? What will conditions be like when He does?
