There is no conflict between science and the Bible..one needs is a proper understanding how to merge science and the Bible.
Last year scientists at the University of Padua in northern Italy dated it to between 300BC and AD400 – still hundreds of years after Christ, who is believed to have died between 30-36AD.
Other scientists have previously suggested that neutron radiation may have been responsible for the ghostly image of a crucified man with his arms crossed.
If that is true, why does it say “the earth was formless and empty” and “the Spirit of God hovered over the waters”? Are these “Cavemen” real or are they just computer generated images? The topic of “Intelligent Design” is often referred to in the media.
How can I briefly explain to a person knowledgeable about Evolution why and how to believe in Creationism? Is it possible that God would have created an earth which is a billion years old, in 6 days, less than 10,000 years ago, in the same way that He created Adam not as a baby, but as an adult? The bible teaches that God created the world out of nothing. Evolutionists have drawn lines of evolutionary descent between supposed ancestors to mankind.
If the dates received from carbon dating are accurate, it would be a huge problem for those who believe in the Genesis account of creation.
However, when one starts with the Bible and interprets the information received from carbon dating accordingly, one will soon learn that in no way does carbon dating disprove the young earth.
Radiometric dating remains a reliable scientific method.

Shai Cherry of Vanderbilt University notes that modern Jewish theologians have generally rejected such literal interpretations of the written text, and that even Jewish commentators who oppose some aspects of science generally accept scientific evidence that the Earth is much older.
Many of the earliest Christians who followed the Septuagint calculated the date of creation to be around 5500 BC, and Christians up to the Middle Ages continued to use this rough estimate: Clement of Alexandria (5592 BC), Sextus Julius Africanus (5501 BC), Eusebius (5228 BC), Jerome (5199 BC) Hippolytus of Rome (5500 BC), Theophilus of Antioch (5529 BC), Sulpicius Severus (5469 BC), Isidore of Seville (5336 BC), Panodorus of Alexandria (5493 BC), Maximus the Confessor (5493 BC), George Syncellus (5492 BC) and Gregory of Tours (5500 BC).
This flood of neutrons may have imprinted an X-ray-like image onto the linen burial cloth, say the researches.
