  •  I have a theory (4+ / 0-)

    I believe that the Earth is really 100 quadrillion years old, that the dinosaurs were wiped out a trillion years ago, and so on.    The decay rate of radioactive has been changing all right, but in the opposite direction that the creationists think.  Prove me wrong!

    •  Unless the constant (3+ / 0-)

      "c" has changed, the evidence is pretty good at we are looking at a universe around 15 thousands of millions years old.  But one could argue that as well.  In short, it is not possible to prove nor disprove what you have said, but your idea is certainly not a theory, but a rather fantastic hypothesis.  I know that you made it to make your point, so I am not ridiculing you at all.

      Warmest regards,


      Time for real health care reform, not just to patch the patches.
