One of the people who could answer your question is Greg Doudna, who, I 
believe, did a fairly impressive job with his paper at the SBL meeting 
after asking us all those questions last fall.  His paper (on carbon 
dating the the DDS) was well attended, and those who heard it seemed to take 
him seriously.  I believe that he is in transit to Europe, at the moment, 
to study with the Danes, unless someone knows that he has arrived and is 
reconnected to the Internet.
