Carbon dating art forgery
Carbon 14 is a radioactive variation of carbon, and because plants pick up both types through photosynthesis, all living organisms — cotton plants included — have the same ratio of carbon 14 to stable carbon as the atmosphere.
But a series of nuclear bomb tests in the 1950s and 1960s spiked this normally consistent ratio.

The Bible can be trusted in its history as well as its moral & spiritual teaching.
The historical accuracy of the New & Old Testaments has been confirmed again & again by modern archeology.
