Unfortunately, these are the ones that the young earth creationist will single out and attack, because of their assumptions that the techniques are perfect.
We know the limitations of Carbon-14..course, this doesn't prevent the author from doing a little mud-slinging at the old earth geologist!

What we have to decide this issue is the evidence from God's creation, and not our assumptions.

You can also pass in other intervals as a second parameter like: This would subtract 12 hours from the current date/time. The example above uses a portion of the input from the calendar items lava file.
Are there scientists out there that will swear up and down that their dates are completely accurate?
