At this point in life, I think that if I am given the choice of having a good, permanent relationship with a man my own age, versus keeping my Judaism, at this point I would choose the man.
What are the chances of a woman my age meeting a Jewish man in his early 40s?
However, the reason for this is understood and the problem is restricted to only a few special cases, of which freshwater clams are the best-known example.
It is not correct to state or imply from this evidence that the radiocarbon dating technique is thus shown to be generally invalid.
Never married, she has a son James, now 13, by a man she parted from before her son was born.
The field of radiocarbon dating has become a technical one far removed from the naive simplicity which characterized its initial introduction by Libby in the late 1940's.He is paunchy with grey chest hair and not especially rich.I started going to single events sponsored by the local church, because they are much more sensitive to the needs of singles my age.Radiocarbon is not suitable for this purpose because it is only applicable: a) on a time scale of thousands of years and b) to remains of once-living organisms (with minor exceptions, from which rocks are excluded).MYTH #2 Radiocarbon dating has established the date of some organic materials (e.g., some peat deposits) to be well in excess of 50,000 years, thus rendering a recent creation (6 to 10 thousand years ago) impossible.Since limestone contains very little, if any, radiocarbon, clam shells will contain less radiocarbon than would have been the case if they had gotten their carbon atoms from the air.This gives the clam shell an artificially old radiocarbon age.I did meet men who wanted to live with me without any commitment, but I always said, "No," because I honestly thought there was someone out there who would commit to me the old-fashioned way.What I find even more depressing is the Jewish community's lack of sensitivity to people my age who are single.Single women are at the bottom of the totem pole, especially those past child-bearing age.When I was younger I used to meet men through Jewish events and synagogues.
