with dating systems there is no ultimate regulator and there is no way of knowing how far off each dating system is from the correct date.

But there is. Change the clock in the analogy to a sundial.

scientists ASSUME they have the correct date because all dating systems tell them what they want to hear

All of them? And they all want to hear the same thing?

By using a sundial instead of a clock in the analogy you can presume that there is actually a correct time and that you can know what it is.

I am no scientist but I ASSUME that there is a rate of radioactive decay and that it can be known.

no true christian would accept any secular teaching especially when it calls the God they love a liar

If this applies to you then you really have no place in a discussion based on facts and logic. I think this is referred to as suspension of disbelief.
