The frequency of leap seconds indicates a young earth (Talk.Origins)
From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
- Leap seconds have had to be inserted into the year twenty-two times between 1970 and 1999, showing that the earth is slowing 0.77 seconds per year. At this rate, the earth would have slowed to a stop if it were billions of years old.

CreationWiki response: There is no disagreement with Talk Origins on this point. This is not a common claim, it is most likely an error made by the cited source, the most likely cause of which is a poorly written news article on leap seconds.
