Carbon dating is like csi. Nothing in real life like it is on tv.

Carbon dating is not a reliable measure of age past 1000 or so years. Nobody fucking knows. We've found human remains that date back 200k years. Are you telling me that in the last thousand or so is the first time we've discovered technology? Seems improbable.

So, tell me, if carbon dating is unreliable past 1000 or so years, how do we know those human remains date back 200,000 years?

So you use a much smaller timeframe to refute my statement? Good job.

Make it 10,000 years for all I give a fuck. You think in all that time, humans lived like monkeys and figured nothing out?
