They dated it by the coral which was found on it. That is how they were able to get a good date on when it was being used.
It is still possible Bimini is much older than the date they came up with. But the fact they found an anchor which was left there so long ago should create more questions about the ancients visiting the Americas. The thinking now is any visitations were by accident and not due to a sea route. If there was an ancient sea route, how long has it been in use?
The anchor does help with the Atlantis cause as it opens up the possibility of Atlantis being in that area. However, the anchor was not any physical evidence of Atlantis in itself.
