Popular science (SciPop) has a timescale that's been induced to rationalize biological evolution. Along the way it's picked up some supposedly supporting evidence: radiocarbon and radioisotope dating.
As simple and convenient the young Earth creation (YEC) variable rate of nuclear decay response to radiometric dating may be, it's also an Achilles Heel.
Atheist science trolls (ASTs) think that they have the silver bullet which kills the Young Earth Creationist (YEC) belief that nuclear decay is variable and that it was initially rapid.
Original sin brought the curse of decay and physical death to our bodies. Yet there was another consequence beyond our physical bodies, God also cursed the Earth which began to decay. Nuclear decay.
