Measurements of the speed of light have been made for the past three hundred years which could potentially provide the required empirical basis.Norman and Setterfield tabulate the results of 163 speed of light determinations in The Atomic Constants, Light, and Time, and claim clear support for the decay of c hypothesis from this data set.My inability to verify this claim when this data set was subjected to appropriate, objective analyses is the motivation for this article, which is intended to caution creationists against a wholesale, uncritical acceptance of the Norman and Setterfield hypothesis.At the present time, it appears that general support by the creationist community of the decay of the speed of light hypothesis is not warranted by the data upon which the hypothesis rests.Norman and Setterfield's Data Analysis The university text, Data Reduction and Error Analysis for the Physical Sciences, by Philip R.
