These techniques, unlike carbon dating, mostly use the relative concentrations of parent and daughter products in radioactive decay chains.
For example, potassium-40 decays to argon-40; uranium-238 decays to lead-206 via other elements like radium; uranium-235 decays to lead-207; rubidium-87 decays to strontium-87; etc.
It does not give dates of millions of years and when corrected properly fits well with the biblical flood.
There are various other radiometric dating methods used today to give ages of millions or billions of years for rocks.
So, we have a “clock” which starts ticking the moment something dies.
Obviously, this works only for things which were once living.
Carbon has unique properties that are essential for life on Earth.
Overall, the energy of the Earth's magnetic field has been decreasing, so more C is being produced now than in the past.
This will make old things look older than they really are.
This also has to be corrected for. Second, the ratio of C in the atmosphere at that time to be estimated, and so partial calibration of the “clock” is possible.
Accordingly, carbon dating carefully applied to items from historical times can be useful.
When a “date” differs from that expected, researchers readily invent excuses for rejecting the result.
