Experimentation for the Decay Constant

Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.

(Leviticus 19:36) KJV

Are nuclear decay rates constant or variable? With only 120 years of measurements to work with, and using gravitational time dilation to debunk stellar spectroscopy, there’s no way to find out.

Popular science (SciPop) has what it thinks is a solid defense against the fact that nuclear decay rates aren’t constant. If nuclear decay was variable, they say, then the intense radioactivity of the initial burst would have generated enough heat to melt the Earth.

Radioactive decay at a rate fast enough to permit a young earth would have produced enough heat to melt the earth.

(Meert 2002). From Claim CF210

It’s math, right? Math doesn’t lie, you have to believe it. What is math anyway?

Math is imaginary, it only exists in your mind when you have faith that numerals represent concepts.

Math may not lie, but it can be used to tell a lie. The problem here isn’t really the math, it’s the scenario to which it’s been applied. It’s based on the Uniformitarianism notion that radioisotopes were distributed evenly throughout the crust and mantle at the time when nuclear decay began.

Uniformitarianism / u·ni·form·i·tar·i·an·ism / yo͞onəˌfôrməˈterēənizəm
Geology noun: the theory that changes in the Earth’s crust during geological history have resulted from the action of continuous and uniform processes. It’s the assumption that changes in the crust of the Earth have been so slow and gradual that they are not noticeable unless you consider a timescale in the order of millions of years. It’s used to rationalize the premise that current conditions of the Earth are a sufficiently accurate predictor of conditions in the past.

Let’s look at were Adam and Eve toast? and we’ll generate Hypothesis 10.
