Flood and Creation Dating the oldest Bristlecone pines now living quite possibly have been growing since right after the flood. These varied conditions could allow a slightly more recent date which may even closely match Ussher's date of 2350 B. Even without adjustment, the living Bristlecones do fit well within the range of dates for the flood provided by numerous Biblical scholars.However, some recent debate concerning the record of rings found in the dead wood has led to proposals of much older dates for the flood, and ultimately creation.Forgers commonly use the bottom of an original broken vessel, which has no commercial value, and make a new fake vessel on top of it.The TL operator generally takes samples for dating from the bottom, avoiding damage to the image of the artwork.However, producing fakes with this method calls for expertise on the subject, as well as expensive instruments.

Electron trapping Energy absorbed from ionizing radiation frees electrons to move through the crystal lattice, where some are trapped at imperfections.The accuracy of thermoluminescence dating is only about 15% for a single sample and 7 to 10% for a suite of samples in a single context.Create fake pottery that will pass the thermoluminescence test One way to pass a fake through a TL test is to expose the newly-made pottery to a high dose of artificial radiation sources, thus fooling the measurement instruments.Flood dates in the range of 10,000 to 15,000 years before present have been suggested, but it could be possible that the preserved dead wood grew in the period before the flood.Only the living trees by strict necessity need date from the time of the flood or more recent times.
