Bill Maher makes fun of religious people all the time -- that's one of his shticks -- but I watched that whole show, and Nye was just trying to point out that people who believe in a 6,000-10,000 year old earth are simple WRONG. The earth is about 4.5 billion years old, and while that is not an exact figure, it can be PROVEN that it's very close to the truth." Just because a group of thelogians from the bronze age cooked up the idea that the Earth is 6 to 10,000 years old doesn't mean every Christian on the planet buys it as the gospel... ...But, on the other hand, carbon dating doesn't tell us the true age of anything. You can carbon date the steel in the hood of your car and it'll tell you that it's billions of year old, what it won't tell you is when it was refined into steel and formed into the hood of your car.

Carbon dating is getting more accurate all the time as it is recalibrated using things of known age. The carbon clock was "reset" last year with some core samples from a Japanese lake bed. That allowed recalibration to something known to be 52,000 years old.
