Methods are precise insofar as they are properly used.

Carbon 14 is created by cosmic rays in the upper atmosphere.

Anyone questioning the accuracy of radiometric methods is obliged to explain why the cross-checks to sediments, coral growth, tree rings, and other isotope pairs all have the same errors.

Why would an error in radiometric dating correspond to errors in the other methods so that they all track?

Age estimates can be cross-tested by using different isotope pairs.
