No, Greg, you weren't the one who called this material *absolute data. I 
know of your expertise in C14 dating. I would like statements about C14 to
be clear to scientists and non-scientists. That's a wish.

In a scholarly way, I am persisting in challenging the way C14 data are 
used in support of scholarship. That's more than a wish.
