well carbon dating is so inaccurate one can get different dates off by thousands of years by testing the same sample and when a scientist gets a date that goes against his theory he often dates it as many times as necessary to fit into his ideas( and so he can continue to get grant money) so actually fossils are dated out of place all the time . just Google some of the modern instances

It's called getting an average.

If you're conducting an experiment and want to return a result, you don't just complete one experiment and say "Well, that's that!". You complete an entire thesis of experiments so that each and every experiment can be discussed against one another.

The occurrence of these random dates can be the result of a multitude of reasons but should not be discarded even though, most of the time, it's the result of something going stupidly wrong.

Thousands of years mean nothing. If a fossil is 60 million years old, it doesnt matter if its 60,000,000 or 59,999,000 years exactly. Its a very small difference.

And evolution doesn't occur across an entire species at the same time.

A population with a mutation could live alongside the original population for many years until the original or the mutated population dies out.
