The accuracy of carbon-dating

The Old World is a reference to those parts of Earth known to Europeans before the voyages of Christopher Columbus; it includes Europe, Asia and Africa.

I saw the special on Houdin's "internal ramp" theory. In essence, what he was proposing ( remember, this is EGYPT ) was a cramped, 700 foot long oven. Brier, btw, climbed up to the niche in the pyramid and found nothing to support Houdin's theory.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Pointing out where you were wrong or mistaken is not being a troll .
You won't typing the same comments where you were shown to be in error , unaware or waffling to avoid mentioning sources .

What argument ? I was talking about the points that you got wrong or had illusions about .

I asked for a source of the "magic" 72 figures , more than a couple of times , none was forthcoming .That is the only source or link I asked about .
You clearly didn't have a clue about dating monuments , the use of RC dating , taphonomy , taphonomic logic ,the rate of axial precession ,how to find true north with simple tech at the time of the AE to a similar accuracy etc.
But you do seem to have a belief in a lot of alt ideas that you were unwilling to provide a link to .

Read this carefully , the very first response to your ignorance about the accuracy ."We don't know for sure how they did it but it wasn't that difficult using the tech of the time ."
It's not that difficult , but we couldn't possibly know how it was achieved ,only that it is achievable using the simple tech of the time .
Pointing out errors and mistakes is not trolling .

"we couldn't possibly know how it was achieved ,only that it is achievable using the simple tech of the time . "

tiompan, of course we can learn exactly how "it" was done.
As a matter of fact, the ongoing excavations at Giza will likely answer those questions quite definitively.

I doubt you even know what is being discussed here , otherwise , a moments consideration would have shown how daft that comment was .
Then again that would have entailed reading and understanding what was being discussed .
Read the context of the comment ,think about it , then respond .

I should have clarified that the comments " I doubt you even know what is being discussed here , otherwise , a moments consideration would have shown how daft that comment was .
Then again that would have entailed reading and understanding what was being discussed .
Read the context of the comment ,think about it , then respond ."

were in response to " of course we can learn exactly how "it" was done.

Can someone give me a 3 sentence explantion of how axial precession and C-14 are related?

Well,
I understand your first 4 words.

Then we resume our trip?

The first four words are all you need , if you thought that they might be related .

What follows partly explains why they were associated in the "discussions" here .

Not entirely convinced that this method is more accurate than his previous suggestion .
However . For those that think " of course we can learn exactly how "it" was done.
As a matter of fact, the ongoing excavations at Giza will likely answer those questions quite definitively."
Note .
" However, whether the ancient Egyptians used this technique is unknown. "
And is extremely unlikely to be discovered by excavation .It is one of a group of possibilities .

For those that believe " nothing of what i know from the ancient human history can explain the astounding accuracy towards the true north, ."
Note "It is hard to imagine a method that could be simpler, either conceptually or in practice,"
