As for the various creation websites, I have read almost everything they have posted concerning radiocarbon dating.
Those sites can't even agree among themselves, let alone come up with any coherent explanation of why the method is inaccurate.
The reason they can't agree among themselves is that they are doing apologetics, and no evidence is required. Their explanations just have to sound good enough to fool their flocks. And each other.

Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

If a religion's teachings are true, then it should have nothing to fear from science...--dwise1
"Multiculturalism" does not include the American culture. That is what it is against.
