I gave him a link to start the process, but most fear science because it might send them to H E Double Hockeysticks.

For some any challenge to their gestalt is frightening.
You might wish to update your knowledge of God.
Wow, are *you* missing the point...
Since R. Scott was too polite to put it bluntly enough for you to be unable to miss his meaning, allow me...
Look, you came in here and made a bone-headed comment about the *science* article, based very obviously on your ignorance of scientific dating methods. And you did it to impugn the professionalism, ability, and integrity of the scientists involved.
Quite naturally, R. Scott posted a gentle reminder that you really might want to *learn* something about this branch of science before you go off making a fool of yourself again, and let your lack of knowledge cause you to blunder into making another unjustified gross insult directed at the people who *do* know what they're doing.
Hint: Knowledge of *science* is actually relevant to discussion of a *science* topic such as this one.
But this apparently flew right over your head, and instead you posted the strange and irrelevant non sequitur, "You might wish to update your knowledge of God", as if a) he has actually demonstrated any *lack* in that field of knowledge (and nothing in this thread would support such a conclusion), and as if b) "knowledge of God" is somehow going to shed any light on radiometric and other forms of dating methods (I've read the Bible cover to cover, and somehow I missed *that* chapter...)
Are we clear now? And are we likely to see an apology any time soon?
I could offer a guess, based on what are probably thousands of data points ...
Thank you. You were much more polite than I could have been.
