Radiocarbon dating volcanoes Chat to femdom strapon

A number of research studies since the 1980s have indicated that the Greek island of Santorini's volcano may have erupted not in the 16th century BC as traditionally thought but possibly in the century before that.

If this dating had been confirmed, it would have involved rewriting the whole history of the cultural development of the eastern Mediterranean region.

In fact, the very concept of strata representing long ages does not come from the rock strata themselves.And today we know through lab experiments and natural disasters (such as the eruption of Mt. Helens) that major layering of rock strata can happen catastrophically in a short period of time.Young-earth creation geologists have long held that most sedimentary strata resulted from waterborne deposits during Noah’s Flood.Will the dating of the volcanic eruption of Santorini remain an unsolved mystery?The question whether this natural disaster occurred 3,500 or 3,600 years ago is of great historiographical importance and has indeed at times been the subject of heated discussion among experts.
