It has been suggested that the C-14 decay rate varies proportionately with the age of the universe, and if that age is, say 5,000 years rather than 10 billion years, then the C-14 decay rate could have been many orders of magnitude larger a thousand years ago. <ref>http://www.conservapedia.com/index.php?title=Talk:Carbon_dating&diff=144701&oldid=144638</ref>

It has been suggested that the C-14 decay rate varies proportionately with the age of the universe, and if that age is, say 5,000 years rather than 10 billion years, then the C-14 decay rate could have been many orders of magnitude larger a thousand years ago. [1]
