Re: orion AMS dating

Dear orion list,
 	T. Simms sent to the list this private note responding 
to his private post which requested a response. Though I'm not ashamed 
at my response, I do think netiquite advises against posting private 
notes without permission. As to the data, we read it differently; list 
members are free to make up their own minds. I've said I'm no AMS 
expert; I just made observations that, I think, even a non-expert can 
make, of a view I still hold, on contraindications to a 63 BCE deposit 
date for the 11 caves. Others may have a better understanding of 
statistics than I. As I used to say, "42.7 percent of all statistics 
are made up on the spot." ...<g>
