I have read studies, papers and more, showing that Carbon-Dating can have an error rate of 200% Here are just a few extracts from science journal that got my attention.
"The lower leg lower leg of the Fairbanks Creek mammoth had a radiocarbon age of 15,380 RCY, while its skin and flesh were 21,300 RCY." (Natural History 1949) 'Living mollusk shell were carbon dated as being 2,300 years old.' (Science 1963) 'A freshly killed seal was carbon dated as having died 1,300 years ago' (Antarctic Journal 1971) "One part of Dima (a baby frozen mammoth) was 40,000, another part was 26,000 and the 'wood immediately around the carcass' was 9-10,000." (Geological Survey Professional Paper 862 1975) 'Shells from living snails were carbon dated as being 27,000 years old.' (Science 1984) "The two Colorado Creek, AK mammoths had radiocarbon ages of 22,850 ±670 and 16,150 ±230 years respectively." (Quaternary Research 1992) "One part of the Vollosovitch mammoth carbon dated at 29,500 years old and another part at 44,000." (Geological Survey Professional Paper 862 1975) And one of my favorite extracts.
a reply to: Operation Black Rose I also have to think lab techniques have become better since the 1960's and 70's because of issues like this.
The science on radiocarbon dating is good, execution is the weak link.
Other dating methods are much more reliable to detect ages much older. Try to give us some sources that are a little less than 30 years old.

Radiometric Dating - Modern Dating Methods Also, carbon-14 dating only goes out to about 60,000 years.
