To elaborate even further, I’m an only child, and growing up, I never had many close friends. I can count them on maybe a hand and a half. I was teased and picked on a lot from the kids at school.
“Like, when guys approach you and say, ‘Smile,’ ” said Connie Chen, 88, of Williamsburg. “It may not be harassment, but it’s sexist.”
To summarize: both experimental evidence and theoretical considerations preclude significant changes to rates of radioactive decay. The limits placed are somewhere between ten and twenty orders of magnitude below the changes which would be necessary to accommodate the apparent age of the Earth within the timescale (by means of accelerated decay).
Further, even prior to the unmanned landings mentioned above, Snelling and Rush document that there was no clear consensus in the astronomical community on the depth of dust to expect. So those making the argument do not even have the excuse that such an consensus existed prior to the unmanned landings.

Back to reference to this book review .
Rates of radiometric decay (the ones relevant to radiometric dating) are thought to be based on rather fundamental properties of matter, such as the probability per unit time that a certain particle can "tunnel" out of the nucleus of the atom. The nucleus is well-insulated and therefore is relatively immune to larger-scale effects such as pressure or temperature.
Yet at a time when unwelcome advances are increasingly stigmatized, how is one to know in advance what type of approach is likely to be well received?
After God prompted Travis to say the exact words Leah had been praying for, the answer seemed obvious. "God brought us together, and once we knew that, the other factors didn't really even matter. We wanted to be obedient to Him," he says. The couple still serves together in ministry and has two teenage sons.
But something I could relate to well was adults. My father was a businessman who ran a successful chiropractor practice. I was around adults all my life -- events, parties, meetings -- so I really knew it no other way.
