Hey Calilasseia, I did have one person try to use a recent event as proof decay rates change. The person claimed that there is something in the sun we don't know about that changes the decay rates of materials and that whatever it was, affected the Earth in a way to make it look billions of years old(the rates of change were so miniscule that billions would still be billions imo). I'm going off of memory and I lost the link they sent me but what the link showed was that two labs did have a slight change in the decay rates of (I forgot which ones specifically) certain isotopes before a solar event. I don't know if you know about that article, I will try to find it as I meant to post it awhile back but got busy and forgot, but was the article a fake, the lab results a fluke, or do certain isotopes have a very miniscule change in decay rates preceding solar events due to an unknown mechanism?
