Ok, why do you disagree with the sediments depositing in lakes statement, and I really, really, really want to know why you don't agree with yours or Brown's c14 curve?
Lakes are everywhere, and provide an excellent record of changes in climate. As long as a lake doesn't dry up then it will slowly accumulate sediment over time, providing a nice continuous record of deposition. Not all lakes are ideal for this. Some dry up, some are affected by floods, etc. However, identifying lakes that are likely to form nice clean sediment records is fairly easy and there are many lakes that fit the criteria.Do you agree with the above?[no]It appears that both Brown and yourself think C14 dating is adequate back to 3000BP. I am happy to work with that.Do you agree that C14 is adequate to 3000BP, as per your and Brown's previous writings?[yes]Now, Brown and yourself both propose that C14 dating prior to 3000BP was influenced by the flud and have both posted proposed curves showing the C14 ratio dropping rapidly from 3000BP to 4500/5500BP (or whatever year the flud was supposed to occur).Do you agree with the curves proposed by Brown and yourself (Brown in his book, you in your varves spreadsheet). I know those curves don't agree precisely. If you like you can nominate whichever one you agree with.[no]
I was reading about Lake Baikal today, which is thought to be the oldest lake on the planet, at about 25 million years old. It's also home to its very own seal--the Baikal seal, or nerpa--which is the only freshwater seal, and only lives there. #RandomNatureFacts

My source said 5 million. Now I can never trust again.
