I must admit I know very little about science, but I figured if I had a
science related question, this would be the place to post it.
Where can I find information about carbon dating--especially as related
to the age of the earth or of life? In particular how do we find the
ages of dinosaurs or other animals that became extinct before the
existence of man or the first records were kept?
