This position fails because it does not take into account the possibility that all people from the same towncould set their watch by one central time piece. let's say the town square clock, for sake of argument.
But unlike the original analogy, this has no analogue in the real world, does it?
statistical analysis means nothing for it does not exclude the possibility that everyone can have the wrong time
But the facts do exclude that possibility.
to say one has the correct time because other dating systems say it is correct doesn't mean the dates given are correct. with time, we have an ultimate govenor who regulates time and against which we can verify if our watch pieces go off.
Namely? And why can't we calibrate our dating systems against that?
in other words scientists ASSUME they have the correct date because all dating systems tell them what they want to hear and there is no objective, superior unfailing system to make corrections thus the scientists can place any date they want to an item to fit their theory and unbelief, then synchronize that date with similar dating systems because they are in control of the systems and no one can correct them.
basically the dating systems are manipulated to fit the bias of the scientist doing the dating. they are too subjective to be reliable.
Stuff you made up does not a basis for an argument make.

It is the custom of these forums to reply to one person at a time.
Being coherent is also preferable, but this may exceed your abilities.

It's not clear from your comments what it is you're trying to misunderstand or in what way you're trying to misunderstand it.
