Carbon dating. Carbon dating is a technique used to determine the approximate age of once-living materials. It is based on the decay rate of the radioactive carbon isotope 14C, a form of carbon taken in by all living organisms while they are alive.
To radiocarbon date an organic material, a scientist can measure the ratio of remaining Carbon-14 to the unchanged Carbon-12 to see how long it has been since the material's source died. Advancing technology has allowed radiocarbon dating to become accurate to within just a few decades in many cases. Dec 7, 2016

Question one: How many misses (& to what degree) along the way were asserted in 1940, 1950, 1960, 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, 2010, 2020, regarding carbon dating and other scientific findings evaluating age of material?
Question two: Is it possible ‘over the span of millions of years’ to measure Carbon without a diminishing unknown element to gauge 'sudden change' like sudden combustion at a time point? Man’s life is 100 years old, would Carbon decay at 2.5% speed from years 100 to 200 and 4.5% from 200 to 400 and 10.5% from 400 to 600 years and then after X amount of years we can't actually measure it accurately or project it because combustion hits a 95% at a year far off but not to the millionth or 10 thousandths? Did science findings move forward because it wasn’t provable one way or the other that far out, that it just continued from 10.5% to 14.5% and then 18% (or no change factor) to change years from centuries to millenniums?
Question three: Do all things go and projected rates? Do the lines of a tree trunk, when measuring the circles always indicate the age growth rate of a tree? No clue if this is a real example, but say the rings are two millimeters apart and then when it goes 3 millimeters you know an extra century passed as each cell line difference indicates a true measure? A rogue corn grows faster than the other corn, how exact is measuring plant life combining size and time pass? If not corn or trees, lets talk fossils and rock structures, are there variances that we can't predict or know that could disprove things being so old here on earth? While findings mathematically can be correct even with sound projections, dating beyond a time period is inconclusive?
VARIANCE CONCERNS (article link below)
In 2007, Armand Mijares, an archaeologist at the University of the Philippines, asked his colleague Philip Piper to examine animal bones Mijares dug out of Callao Cave in Luzon. The expansive cave yawns open above a river plain. One limestone chamber is so large it houses a Catholic chapel. A deposit of bones in the entrance chamber goes back to the Pleistocene epoch, which lasted from 2.6 million to 11,700 years ago. <SEE FULL ARTICLE BELOW>
The variances are too large in the findings; it’s possible rock formation dating is mixed with animal and human bones in the conclusions. In that radiocarbon dating & carbon dating may be accurate to go out to further numbers as some scientific findings show, but the living organism may not be directly associated to rock formation. There are books, there are different websites changing in the google SEO on the age of man and fossils, I wish I could have hard facts to reference. It would be better to see the errors along the way to even better guestimate things. It appears they are getting more accurate with isotope deterioration findings as time passes and technology develops, but I’m sure there was excitement at the times of mathematical findings to disprove Genesis.
Adam was 930 years old before he died, having Seth at 130 years of age.
Seth lived 912 years (+130) and Seth had Enosh at 105 years of age.
Enosh lived 905 years, etc <SEE CHART FOR ADDITIONAL CALCULATIONS>
After the flood, in which Noah lived an additional 550 years, the children who re-populated the earth that created a one language world at the time of the Tower of Babel, lived for say an additional 350 years knowing Shem, who lived a total of 600 years, one of the 8 on the Ark, as Noah’s son, was 98 years old after the 40 days of rain occurred. He had his son Arpachshad at age 100. So if Noah lived 350 more, then his son lived 500 years more which is 150 years plus 2006 (as the chart indicates). So now were at year 2,156. Arpachshad lived 438 years. Had a kid at 35, the next generation had a kid at 30 and lived 433 years (Shelah), the next Eber lived 464 years, the next lived 239 years, the next lived 230 years, the next lived 148, before Terah who connects us to the patriarchs and Abram or Abraham with the sons of Israel. The math doest just add up easily since they live simultaneously, but will toss on another short-hand guestimate of 150 more years to 2,306. Abraham lived 175 years, his wife Sarah lived 127 years (now see below how averages declined).
BACKTRACK: So before the flood God decided “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward. Nephilim are referenced as giants. The spirit in man diminished not immediately after it was said in Genesis that that would be the case; Noah's son still lived for 600 years after Noah had lived for 950 years (gradually diminished) eventually becoming ’70 if not 80 years’ written by David in the Psalms - though remember world records even today still hit 120 years of age by people across the world. Did they find Nephilim bones? There not Dinosaurs? Did science find these things mentioned in Genesis? We know of more referenced biblical giant sea creatures (Leviathan in Job, large fish and Jonah, Oxford Genesis chapter 1 sea monsters) but what were Nephilim? (If not man what kind of beast particularly)?
Matthew 1:17 ‘So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations, and from David to deportation to Babylon fourteen generations, and from deportation to Babylon to the Christ fourteen generations.’
Generation time chunking: So Parent 1 dies at 75 years old. Child 1 dies at 75 years old. Grandchild dies at 75 years old. Three generations pass. Maybe you can calculate it better but make an average birth age of 25 years of age and say the age of Child 1 is 50 to 60 when Parent 1 dies at 75 years of age. What I'm getting at is this can be calculated more specifically, regardless, we’re going to use a rule of thumb that 14 generations is around 450 years.
From Acts 13:20, Paul, who was particular about Jewish history as one who was ‘a zealous pharisee surpassing each detail beyond his companions, maybe even scribes included’ that said from the Egyptian Exile (Joseph, Moses & Joshua) to the judges (Deborah & others) was 450 years that passed until Samuel the prophet came about. It happens to be a duration similar to the 14 generation total sum segments that give us genealogy of early man to today.
Samuel chooses Saul as king; this is as David, the king to replace Saul, lives as a teenager when Samuel is likely middle aged or so (David killed goliath at a young age as a Shepard boy just to refresh your memory). Abraham is slightly before Moses and the 40 years of Egyptian exile referenced by Paul who said 450 years then passed. So if Matthew 1:17 references Abraham to David, it’s a rough educated guess to say an additional 500 years from Abraham to David which is ’14 generations,’ but will use 450 as the ultimate number. Paul said it more Moses to Samuel but it's basically a similar time duration within 50 to 100 years or so. Then Matthew records 14 generations from David to Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonian captivity. Then another 14 generations from the end of that 70-year captivity to the birth of Christ AD. So another 450 years of BC time chunk before current era. If you cross checked this estimate of ‘450 years for 14 life cycle generations’ since I didn’t do the math (not my strong suit but probably 13 generations X 25 years of average age of birth + 127 as Abraham's age = 452, etc) that could make this even more accurate. Plus average age probably went from 105 to 95 to 85 to 80 to 75. Anyway we were at 2,306 years of existence that passed in BC time, before we hit Abraham. So 2,306+ 450+ 450+ (MARGIN FACTOR of 200 years) = 3,206 years of BC human genealogy. Plus 2020 years (modern day today) AD human existence = mans bones at 5,226 years of age.
HOW WE BECAME
Prior to Day 1 – God exists as a spirit wisp hovering over a large deep sphere of water inside darkness all around. Prior to day one, see the parenthesis below..
‘conception, story plot <author of life>, Holy Spirit & Melchizedek instituted as the plural ‘Let us make man in our image.’
I’ll say in blasphemy that God might have started the project and hit submit at times along the way but knew He controls the software end user option manifestation (aware of decay, pollution, molecule, flesh, cells and all things). If it’s been 5,226 years which is 1 million, nine hundred and seven thousand, four hundred and 90 days of time that has passed, did he go through all 1,907,490 days first? I know I post before proofreading, that learning takes demolishing and rebuilding at times, so while ‘His ways are higher than the heavens than ours,’ and ‘he knows the end before the beginning,’ we can’t compare to God ourselves in this manner, implying that He didn’t know beforehand He would regret mankind and blot them off the face of the earth with Noah and the flood.
ONLY REFERENCE ESV FOR PROPHETIC PURPOSES
Day 1: Light and Dark – Light was called the day and dark was called the night. Maybe He learned additional reflection from within himself. The sun and moon wasn’t first created. The stars weren’t yet created. In the 2nd heaven, at the location of New Jerusalem (not New Earth) God’s light lights the entire city without a sun. I sure as heck hope, there is a sun and lots of them in the New Earth.
Day 2: Water atmosphere gets split and materialized. The water is deep to the bottom of the sphere but then becomes air atmosphere and is called the ‘the heavens,’ which is the clouds where planes fly all the way up to where rockets fly. The ‘heavens’ is also a different planar existence known as ‘the spiritual realm,’ but one word can mean two separate things as is the exact case often with this word usage in the bible. Day 2, he created the ozone layer, the water molecule effect of it rising into the heavens.
Day 3: Land was created between water. Land was called ‘Earth,’ and Water was called ‘Sea.’ Vegetation grew yielding seeds and plants bearing fruit on the land.
Day 4: God created the cosmos. God created two great lights one to rule the day and a lessor one to rule the night—and the stars. They were made for ‘signs, for seasons, for days and years, to give light to the earth.’ Man named it Sun and Moon like He gave us permission to name the animals.
Day 5: Living creatures were created, but only in the sea and the air. Sea monsters and birds and fish.
Day 6: From cattle and livestock, to insects and swarming things, to humans God created us all.
Day 7: God rested one full sundown and morning rise. Afterwards God said,
‘These are the generations
of the heavens and the earth when they
In the day that the LORD God made the
earth and the heavens.’
Non-time transcending to our awareness, and even the 7 days of God’s work, the Euphrates river is made in a hidden zone. This zone is protected by the guardian cherubim with flaming swords and auto reaction. There is a Euphrates to the East in the real earth too. There is gold and bdellium and onyx stone in the real world too. There are four rivers somewhere I would guess, here on earth, that split from one source too, but what we do know about this hidden location, is that this additional terrain has a river that flows out of Eden into the specially made garden where it divides into the rivers, Pishon, Gihon, Tigris, and Euphrates. If we were on a magical hunt to find the Garden of Eden, we’d have to use a compass that always would point us to the east until we fell through a crack (or portal) to find it. In this magical land, was the birth of the most advanced specie of existence, an additional story was made just for our creation and the unfolding of human DNA become a breathing being. A special garden was planted separately that mixed realms unto earth..

I trust the library, you should go there to find the information or ask a full time professional studying scientist. While it may vary, there is enough specific progressive information and research to out date the bible's genealogy as it claims. Surely, there are bones of humans over 5,226 years of age as your post above claims to be the age limit of the history of human existence. While this hasn't been unanimously proclaimed as a once source proof, there are many references of human species being categorized hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of years ago. I could be mistaken, but I do believe that evidence would disprove the accuracy of Genesis and the entirety of the bible's 'word of God' elevated status.
