The history of Earth is far more complex than we're being led to believe, and there is a massive conspiracy going on to cover up the truth.
Due to the Sun's variable output, radio carbon dating is useless.
They cannot date Stones
Because the decay rate is logarithmic, radiocarbon dating has significant upper and lower limits. It is not very accurate for fairly recent deposits. In recent deposits so little decay has occurred that the error factor (the standard deviation) may be larger than the date obtained. The practical upper limit is about 50,000 years, because so little C-14 remains after almost 9 half-lives that it may be hard to detect and obtain an accurate reading, regardless of the size of the sample.

Also, Carbon dating becomes unreliable past 48,000 BC or so.
If modern man has been around [As has been suggested] for roughly 200,000 years then that means he had pretty good cognitive ability and possible monument building skills which we are presently hard pressed to find evidence of. That alone opens up quite interesting conjecture, discussions and debate.

I agree. However, there's a big stretch from that to an industrial civilisation - evidence for which we'd have in, for example, ice cores (we can date the start of the Industria revolution, for example, very well by studying gases trapped in the ice)
Honestly we can't really even guess the age of the Earth. Due to the Sun's variable output, radio carbon dating is useless. Maybe the Earth is 4,000,000 years old, maybe it is 125,000,000,000 years old. In all reality we just have no idea. It could be super young in comparison to the numbers I haphazardly threw out there.

I do feel that there were isolated pockets of cultures and proto-civilizations scattered about the planet which had reached varying levels of development. Again, I still believe we need to do more research along those now sunken ice age coastlines.
(B) says: Wait a minute. What about these out of place factors that don't always fit theory A? These people shouldn't have known about this. These people shouldn't have been able to dream about this, let alone do it.
