The guide told us that scientist estimated it would take 200 years for the stairs to be covered...
Science can't even accurately predict a growing stalagtite!

It's good that you keep questioning science in general. Have you ever thought of becoming a scientist yourself? maybe you could fix some of the apparent problems that a few of theories have.
The 66 books of the Bible are the written Word of God. The Bible is divinely inspired and inerrant throughout. Its assertions are factually true in all the original autographs. It is the supreme authority, not only in all matters of faith and conduct, but in everything it teaches. Its authority is not limited to spiritual, religious or redemptive themes but includes its assertions in such fields as history and science.
By definition, no apparent, perceived or claimed evidence in any field, including history and chronology, can be valid if it contradicts the Scriptural record. Of primary importance is the fact that evidence is always subject to interpretation by fallible people who do not possess all information.

Carbon dating is grossly unreliable. That's been proven time and time again.
Actually Carbon dating is extremely reliable (especially with the invention fo the accelerator mass spectrometer) for anything contaning carbon. I doubt you actually know the process of how it works by your above statement. By the way its just not carbon that has proven efficient. They have also dated aluminium and chlorine.
Also, ice cores have proven their efficiency time and time again too.

I don't see any conspiracy with evolution. I see a fossil record that seems to support - or at least, not refute - a theory that species can change. In fact, I see more recent work that shows that species *do* change. Just as natural selection can drive evolution, so can "unnatural selection", humans breeding animals for various traits. Look at dogs. They descend from the wolf, yet you've got the chihuahua (the existence of the chihuahua is proof that there is no God, but I digress).

True they may not attack you now, but back in the day it could've been house arrest or burnings. So your just lucky on timing.

Nice, you made a better job of explaining how the theory works than i do. star for that. However, the main reason I am replying to you is that I found your above statement interesting. How does the existence of the chihuahua serve as proof that there is no god?
I never heard that one before.
