: : Dear Jim,

: : Intending no disrespect to you or to the guys at U of Arizona, I offer the observation that any chemist who tried to report the results of his better way of doing something without completely describing his methods and answering reasonable questions about them would be ignored by his colleagues.

: : You know Steve I know you are right about that. It actually is an interesting question , why the secrecy? Could it be that the percieved age of things is so important to people? Heck, you know it might be. There is certainly more here than meets the eye. Jim

Dear Steve,

First, this is the short answer to your what said "NO, I am not mistaken"

Was who steal (bring) fire as a representative of knowledge from Gods to ordinary folks Prometheus? I was thinking to say "do we need another Prometheus?" but gave up since those who live in chateaus don't have fire... They are behaving as if they have and deserving respects from public. Sorry, I was unable to connect this post to the topic. But more than 30 posts (I counted) is related to C14 and no one is signing his/her expert under posts of C14. Then the question: isn't it meaningless if we, non-experts of C14, talk about C14. Well, in my opinion, C14 is not a beloved property of science(-tist or -tistism) and this talk continues until an expert disprove our prejudges.
