Science has dozens of different methods for dating ancient materials.
When several of them produce converging results -- as is the case here -- that is as close as science can ever get to the truth of a matter.
Judeo-Christian traditions, and most denominations today, have long recognized such scientific findings as valid.

Among some of these there is DNA evidence of relatively recent interbreeding, if not direct ancestry.
