There are many assumptions that have to be made when using radiometric dating methods that might make these techniques unreliable.If any of these assumptions are wrong, then the reliability of the testing method can and should be put in question.Within the Christian world creationism was once widely believed to be true, but since the mid-19th century evolution by natural selection has been established as an empirical scientific fact.
Many are also unaware that Bible-believing Christians are among those actively involved in radiometric dating.

In radiocarbon dating, there is limited precision and “given the way the atmospheric radiocarbon concentration has varied [based on tree ring dating results], there might be several possible ranges” of dates for the object being analyzed.[vi] Plants and trees that are near volcanic areas appear older because the carbon they absorb will be older, from underground, and thus should have very little if any C-14.
“The widespread emanation of C-free volcanogenic carbon dioxide after the Flood would have further inflated the carbon-14 dates of tree rings in a systematic manner in many parts of the world.”[vii] Naturalists have to assume whether wood remains were near volcanic vents or not.
