Carbon-14 dating can only carbon date organic material back to approx. 40,000 years, which means the fossil could not be dated back to 20 million years. It also could not be used for fossils, which no longer contain organic materials. See more »
This silly episode begins with the silly 1950's thing about childbirth. When a woman becomes pregnant, everything is supposed to stop. The husband is an insensitive, myopic nerd who can't see past the end of his nose. The wife tells him how his research is ruining their lives--at least from a financial standpoint. Into his life comes a piece of petrified amber with a spider fossil in it. Somehow, this is going to provide a breakthrough for him and his new family. The kindly old science shop guy wants to sell it to him or 1500 dollars. A lot of goofy stuff happens in a kind of "It's a Wonderful LIfe" way, and his creditors get together and form a corporation. All that stuff aside, I still don't know what they discovered at the end. Watch it and see if you understand.
