Ariodante saidAnyone's who's played Final Fantasy clearly already knows that archeological finds will inevitably dig up ancient civilizations with technology far more advanced than today's.
Lemme know when they find the equivalent of (or better than) today's smartphone.

Ever heard of relativity? Just so happens the rate of the passage of time is not uniformly disstributed throughout the universe but, instead, is dependent upon local gravity wells. To say the universe as a whole is X years old is ignorant at best and denies this proven quality of time, as measured on this very earth.

http://lostinscience.wordpress.com/2011/03/17/gravity-can-really-slow-you-down/In fact, because the frequency change is also the same as the amount time has slowed – what we call time dilation – this formula tells us that, at the event horizon of a black hole, time actually stops. This is why not even light can escape from a black hole; and why we call it the event horizon.
But of course on Earth, as we’ve seen, it’s much less, and clocks on the surface of the Earth only run a little bit slower than those out in space. It would take over 45 years to get a time difference of 1 second.
