Those of us who have developed and used dating techniques to solve scientific problems are well aware that the systems are not perfect; we ourselves have provided numerous examples of instances in which the techniques fail.

The results of the Manson Impact/Pierre Shale dating study (Izett and others 1998) are shown in Figure 1.
