What is the evidence that the speed of light is a constant. I know of none. Could anyone enlighten me. And secondly, one aspect of relativity is that everything is relative to the speed of light. So perhaps the processes that have been used to estimete the age of the earth are also relative to the speed of light. If the speed were much greater in the past, the chemical processes would presumably also be much faster. Relativity would also say that the speed of the earth around the sun would be greater. Somehow I can't understand how that's possible, but everything is relative.
