Hi Foreveryoung,
You are kind of correct; if the earth is "orders of magnitude younger than 4.56 billions years old", then it logically follows that something is badly wrong with radiometric dating. Accelerated decay would be a reasonable suggestion to explain the discrepancy.
But how do you know that the Earth is young?
That is the un-evidenced bit in your formula. That's where you need to provide evidence. And please don't say that you know the earth to be young because radiometric dating is wrong...
