The Shroud of Turin , which many people believe was used to wrap Christ's body, bears detailed front and back images of a man who appears to have suffered whipping and crucifixion.
Many are also unaware that Bible-believing Christians are among those actively involved in radiometric dating.
I read the scientific article on the carbon dating done on the Jericho site written by Bruins and Van Der Plicht.
The IAEA, in partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), is providing expertise and equipment to help countries use nuclear-derived techniques to detect zoonotic diseases and respond to them.

Further evidence comes from the complete agreement between radiometric dates and other dating methods such as counting tree rings or glacier ice core layers.
Many Christians have been led to distrust radiometric dating and are completely unaware of the great number of laboratory measurements that have shown these methods to be consistent.
His Ph D thesis was on isotope ratios in meteorites, including surface exposure dating.
He was employed at Caltech's Division of Geological & Planetary Sciences at the time of writing the first edition.
Below is an alphabetical listing of the main categories of information on this website, many of which equate to webpages.
Usually the best way to find a subject is to use the site search tool.
The size of the sample then required, however, was ~500cm, which would clearly have resulted in an unacceptable amount of damage, and it was not until the development in the 1970s of small gas-counters and accelerator-mass-spectrometry techniques (AMS), requiring samples of only a few square centimetres, that radiocarbon dating of the shroud became a real possibility. The shroud was separated from the backing cloth along its bottom left-hand edge and a strip (~10 mm x 70 mm) was cut from just above the place where a sample was previously removed in 1973 for examination.
