Look at the various radiometric tables in use over the last 20 years or so and you will find, at least for the fossil-bearing strata, a remarkably tight agreement. Did the geochronologists throw darts to determine the accepted dates?
(Matson, 1993, p.1) Either we have a worldwide conspiracy among geologists, which no sane person believes, or else the numerous radiometric dates were consistent enough to allow that kind of close agreement. Dalrymple, an expert in radiometric dating with lots of hands-on experience, puts the percentage of bad dates at only 5-10 percent.
The Pharump diabase from the Precambrian of California yielded an Rb-Sr isochron of no less than 34 b.y., which is not only 7 times the age of the earth but also greater than some uniformitarian estimates of the age of the universe.
This super-anomaly was explained away by claiming some strange metamorphic effect on the Sr.
Some of the dates involved minerals that even Woodmorappe admits are unreliable. If the radiometric method is to be indicted, it must be indicted by dates which were counted as good but shown, by other means, to be bad. Properly interpreted, a number of gross "errors" listed in Woodmorappe's table simply vanish!
A spectacular example showcased by Woodmorappe, though not actually listed in his table, deals with an example from California.

Even if those horror stories were true, the mechanic has failed to prove that the lady's car needs repair, let alone junking.
How different it would be if the mechanic pulled out a statistical study done by a consumer magazine to show that the particular make and year for the lady's car was unreliable, due to certain parts, after so many miles.
This means that the site achieved at least a 60% overall response rate.
With weighted data, it is possible to say, for example, “X% of high school students in our state smoked cigarettes during the past month.
