Cherry picking tests, ideas and quotes are a staple form of creationist argument.
C14 dating IS accurate if it supports your point of view and only then.
C14 dating is NOT accurate because its a radioisotope test and creationists hate those.
Actually, I'm not as good at debating creationists as I was 10 years ago. Back then, I could slam a rebuttal back at any creationist argument by using nothing but statements from creationists themselves (as I did a few posts back with the Paluxy river tracks).
Thats cause they have no idea what they really believe in, nor have any consensus on what data is "good" or even how old the earth really is.
To this effect, in hindsight, I could quote a lot of creationist arguments back to the effect that the earth is only about 10 - 12 thousand years old, and thus the Montana triceratops date of 30,890 years old, and hadrosaur date of 23,170 years is completely are totally invalid, by their own creationist arguments!
