I think the point he was getting at was the doubts brought up with radimetric carbon dating as with any method like this YOU NEED TO KNOW THE ORIGINAL AMOUNT/ CONCENTRATION.
And the OP, like yourself, would be wrong yet again.
The advantage of isochron dating as compared to simple radiometric dating techniques is that no assumptions are needed about the initial amount of the daughter nuclide in the radioactive decay sequence.
Is it actually possible for a creationist to make any accurate scientific statements at all? I've not seen any in this thread so far.
This paper attempts to accomplish two objectives: First, to explain what isochron dating is and how it is done, and second, to provide an analysis of how reliable it is. In this kind of evaluation, it is important to avoid both over- and underestimates of its reliability. While I will offer tentative conclusions, substantive challenges to those conclusions are welcomed. Unfortunately, there is no way to deal with the subject without at least mentioning mathematics. This means that math phobics cannot be completely accommodated; they will at least have to see equations. It also means that those who are ignorant of mathematics will need to educate themselves regarding the equations, or else take them on faith.

I am saying that the earth is not as old as we have been told and that, yes, there were still some dinosaurs on earth living with humans.

The idea of man and dinosaurs living together sounds crazy only if you've been brainwashed into thinking the earth is billions of years old. If the world is as young as the bible says it is (about six thousand years old), then man living with dinosaurs makes perfect sense.
