Carbon dating, when compared against tree rings, is only reliable to 1000 years. All other dating methods are based on unprovable assumptions about the universe and only amount to educated guesses as well, based on Evolutionary theory.
I learned that about Carbon dating in bio too, anything beyond the millions isn't reliable. If you're in the thousands to an extent is can be reliable. And speaking of Carbon dating, I've heard people try to use it to disprove the Bible.
Have you heard about that Nate or anyone else?
