In other words, things that make better sense with rising Carbon 14 (up to a certain time) and therefore misdatings by normal procedure to be reduced with a steep rise in Carbon 14 after Flood petering out to a stable level, and therefore certain periods being drastically shorter than usually expected.
- 1) It agrees with the Bible and therefore with Holy Faith.
That much is obvious.
- 2) It makes sense of the relationship between Göbekli Tepe and Stonehenge, as per less than five centuries between earliest settlers at Stonehenge, just after abandonment of GT, and first stone circle at Stonehenge.
As I mentioned here:
Φιλολoγικά/Philologica : Stonehenge and Göbekli Tepe?
- 3) It allows cave paintings to come within a span of 200 years or less, considering pre-Flood longevity, Altamira and the rest could all be from same artist, if alive on board the ark.
As I mentioned, in Swedish, here:

- 4) It allows the "Invention of Agriculture" in Natufian etc. to be a some centuries long (or shorter, not sure now) reinvention of crops and new climate rather than a painstaking struggle to refocus on inventing, taking millennia instead of the decade some places seem to have been inhabited. As mentioned here:

Copying the dates for all places as per my recalibration and showing extreme dates:
Abu Madi 8050 - 7840 2670 - 2660 'Abr 3 7800 - 7735 2660 - 2659? Abu Gosh (Abou Ghosh) 6945 2610 Abu Hureyra 9190 - 6070 2725 - 2561 Abu Salem 8600 - 8020 2697 - 2670 Ain Abu Nukhayla 6675 - 6420 appr. 2610 - 2599 Ain el-Kerkh 7400 - 7215 2644 - 2633 Ain Jammam 6570 - 6080 2604 - approx. 2565 Akarçay 6800 - 5520 2617 - 2509 Aswad 7855 - 6590 2666 - 2604 Azraq 6400 - 6325 2593 - 2588 Extremes 9190 - 6070 2725 - 2509
The dates for each place are similarily extreme dates for the objects dated in each of them. 3120 years are reduced to 137 years. A reasonable time for hybridizations, watching for good mutations and a few things like that, if you knew, since before the Flood, what to look for. Sure, the extremes could be extended either way on either scale, if you take into account places beginning on other letters than A.
But the point is, these guys were not bunglers. And the centuries between Flood and early Natufian (232 years) were probably too wet and muddy on flat ground to try a full scale agriculture.
Also, it would seem that the amounts of cereals and ceramics found would testify to higher density of population (and a better capacity for feeding them) if the timespan was radically shorter.
By contrast, the guys who started out finding out grain could grow from planted one grain to ears of six grain or whatever per different cereal and then took 3120 years to make agriculture work and make the neolithic revolution would seem to be impossibly slow for human beings with normal talents - exactly as with the earlier cave art, keeping one style of painting for 10000 years (between dated 30000 BP for Altamira and 20000 BP for youngest) really defies the normal experience of human creativity in the arts.
- 5) In pre-Nuraghic Sardinia, 4145 years of conventional dating are reduced to less than 985 years. As stated here, in French:
Redatant la Sardaigne pré-nuraghique avec mes tables?
This reduces the time of the Bonu Ighinu culture, during which they say a certain "Mother goddess was worshipped", from alleged 430 years to about half.
Meaning Pagan cults if such are less stable. Also, with less persistance of depictions, one is less sure it was even a Pagan goddess.
I feel pretty confident, using my table for redating things will continue to pay off and things of prehistory start making more sense.
