Re: Radio carboned dss
There were several scrolls dated by Paleographic dating out of
range or marginal range of the C14's margin of error. "Testament of
Kohath was dated Paleographically 388-353 BCE, C14 100-75 BCE,
for example. I believe the margin of error was to be +/- 175 years?
We have an error of over 250 years in this instance. Though the
findings on most of the scrolls was not so extreme, but on some of
the others the results were also off. Book of Isaiah and the
Pentateuch were marginal. TL dating and C14 tests on all the
scrolls could clear alot up. I do not like the selective C14 dating on
only certain scrolls.
