What is the difference between "accurate" and "absurdly accurate"?
It is usual to use sentence like "The measurement is accurate". But, recently, I read a comment which include "absurdly accurate".
The following is a comment below an article on "Carbon dating".
"Given the lengths of time usually involved in radiometric dating, especially uranium dating, I find it remarkable that scientists are able to get the dates down to as small a range as they do. An error margin of 2 million years when you’re dating things over 2 billion years old, aka less than 2%, is absurdly accurate."
A simple sentence may be "The measurement is absurdly accurate". What is the meaning of the phrase in this context? My guess is that it negatively criticize the accuracy of the measurement.
