Reliability radioactive carbon dating
(They conveniently forget to mention that the tree ring chronology was arranged by C14 dating.The scientists who were trying to build the chronology found the tree rings so ambiguous that they could not decide which rings matched which (using the bristlecone pine).So they tested some of the ring sequences by C14 to put the sequences in the 'right' order.Once they did that they developed the overall sequence.

We believe all the dates over 5,000 years are really compressible into the next 2,000 years back to creation.So when you hear of a date of 30,000 years for a carbon date we believe it to be early after creation and only about 7,000 years old.
This is only because it is well calibrated with objects of known age.
If you have any more questions about it don't hesitate to write.
(2.) I just listened to a series of lectures on archaeology put out by John Hopkins Univ.
Radiocarbon dating can easily establish that humans have been on the earth for over twenty thousand years, at least twice as long as creationists are willing to allow.
Therefore it should come as no surprise that creationists at the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) have been trying desperately to discredit this method for years.
