We already knew this folks. Assuming that radioactive isotopes decay at a constant rate the the first step in establishing the technique of radiometric dating.
Radiometric dating that can produce dates older than the actual age of the earth is necessary to build the scientific backing for the theory of evolution.
Since the earth is only about 6,000 years old and evolution is not the origin of humanity, then it is obvious that radioisotopes don’t decay at a constant rate.
It’s simple logic.
