Dating of “oldest pottery” from China is based on assumptions

As reported on BBC news June 1, 2009, “Pottery recovered from a cave at Yuchanyan in Hunan Province, China, is hailed as being the oldest known.”

But, is it really as old as the secular scientists are saying (i.e. between 18,300 and 15,430 years old)? Are the “secular world view” assumptions about Carbon Dating correct or do they need to be questioned? Does the “young earth worldview” have anything to say about carbon dating?

I found a great article by Tas Walker which discusses these assumptions and points out how evidence is actually consistent with Biblical history rather than the longer time periods assumed by the secular worldview assumptions.

The article also explains why the secular assumptions about Carbon dating are not as reliable as we have been led to believe. This is a very interesting and informative article. Be sure to check it out. HERE’S THE LINK
