Dating Methods

No not that kind of dating ! The scientific kind please.

During the recent debate between Ken Ham and Bill Nye, the young earth creationist Ken Ham made the claim that some 90% of dating methods were wrong. A quick flash to a chart during the debate purportedly showing so, and far too much to read in a second, and then on to somethig else. (Gish Gallop springs to my mischevious mind.)

So did Ham have a point that a piece of 4500 year old timber was found in a rock purportedly 45,000 years old?

"All these dating methods actually give all sorts of different dates, even different dating methods on the same rock." 

My sympathies lie completely with the currently accepted scientific methods of dating rocks, the Earth, the universe ... but, and it is a discussion, is there room for doubt? Could Ham be right and the Earth / universe be some mere 6018 years old?
