Good morning. And I don’t know how old the earth is … I was taught (and believe) that every number stated in science needs units (unless it’s dimensionless) and error bars. But an interesting exercise for the  reader is to use make estimates based on things you know to estimate age and error … what do you get and how do you get it? If you can’t get the age, about about some bound like the Parker limit on monopoles? For example, the moon’s spin is synchronized with the earth’s spin. That’s a quadrupole coupling … that should give you a way to make a  lower bound estimate on how long the earth moon have been a system. Right?
