The Bible has been "disproved with archaeology" in at least one instance. There is simply no evidence for a global flood at the appointed time. You can deny that evidence, or you can disbelieve it, but that will not make it go away.

We agree to disagree on that, and you have not addressed the evidence I raised, on you offered your own explantion based on Millions of years. Try some verifiable evidence or archaeoligical errancy, and before you do, consider the previous assertions, later proven inccorect, eg Jericos existence, David's existence, Beltashazzar's kingship, etc.

...radiocarbon...

I never alluded to radiocarbon, but rather radiometric, such as Pb/Pb isochron. Big difference, and you know it.

...tree rings...

Do you understand correlation coeficients (r-values)? Do you understand Statistical Significance (p-values)? If you do, do some persoanal, independent research on dendrochronolgy (outside of talkorigins) and try and understand it's inherent weekness for dates earlier that circa 1700 AD. Research Bristle Cone Pines, and the methuselah tree, and it's age...

Just because a theologian says something, don't mean it's true, as is often the case. The same is true concerning scientist, even more so, in my estimation.

FWIW, I was a skeptic before I became a Christian. After looking at the evidence for both sides, considering the assumptions behind each set of arguments, and researched both, I became a believer.

Neither of us will convince the other, but my hope is that we both would honestly look at each set of arguments, the assumptions behind each, and make a decision.

You'll notice no one argues about grvity, where babies come from, or the effect of cigarette smoking. These are scientifically verifiable. However, the discussion of age of the earth, the diversity of Genus on the earth, and the origins of life all require faith.

I'm done.
