A while ago I found myself challenging a dutch young earth creationist to a debate as his website "" states he would put any debate on his website, whatever the outcome.
I have been reading a lot around here and through links provided here and had challenged him about data concerning dendrochronology partially because he had no data on it and partially because there aren't a lot of ways to doubt the scientific validity of the data.
He refused that challenge because he stated he wasn't informed enough but was still interested in the information I had to offer though meanwhile challenged me to discuss one of the topics on his website on C14 dating problems.
Now I'm at a point where I know a little about it and about some of the missconceptions made on C14 dating but I'm unsure if I actually know enough to rebute all his arguments, I'm wondering if I could get some good reading material on rebuttals of some of the claims that are not present on talkorigins or if I get a question from him I cant answer, that I ask it in a thread (either this one or somewhere else ?) for more information ?
Be assured that this will also be a learning experience for me
I'm thinking this belongs in the dates and dating forum but I'm not sure seeing as this just might not become an actual debate.
