  1. News “By 2050, global warming may make carbon dating impossible, which means that you won’t have any way to actually prove the Earth is more than 6,000 years old.”

    OK. Funny, but still a little naughty of Signal to add spin to something not said by the article (which does not mention religion at all).

    Let us be clear (and I make no apologies for wearing my Earth System Science hat for this one) this makes no difference to sample already known to be old but for which a more precise date is required. This only affects new samples as this century progresses. So it will affect, say, the dating of ivory as it will be impossible to carbon date to see if it is recent or old (importing new ivory is illegal)), it will _not_ affect the dating of old bones or any archaeological remains.

    Also, other isotopic dating methods exist.
