Yes.. they could but surely it's fundamental that nuclear decays result in a
release of energy? Hence if you increase the rate of decay by by a factor of
10^12 (my estimate of 1 day vs 4.6bY) , then the energy released would go up
by this amount & hence like a huge number of nuclear bombs going off.
Phenomenon X can't account for the energy discrepancy? Though I concede
that magic can ..

Incidentally does anyone know if the RATE people address the issue of energy
