Anything YECs can misinterpret helps them.

Ah, spoilsport. But I fear you may be right.

* cracks knuckles *

The synoptic gospels describe three hours of darkness accompanying the crucifixion. As a solar eclipse is impossible at Passover (which occurs at full moon, whereas a solar eclipse happens only at new moon) this is only possible if the sun itself stopped shining, during which period there would have been no decay-retarding emissions from the sun at all, so obviously the decay rates of particles would have sped up in just such a way as to make young-earthers appear to be completely wrong.

It also caused the existence of intermediate forms, why not? Flood geology is so passe.

I'd bet on an instrumentation problem ...

That's what I was wondering.

4) one of the main signals that these guys see is an annual variation. Annual variations can have any number of alternative explanations.

Yes. I read a story (which I would be grateful if anyone could track down for me, I've tried and failed) about a group of scientists in, I think, Germany, who thought they'd found an annual variation in the gravitational constant.

It turned out their university had a large coal cellar which was filled up at the start of every winter ...
