Bismuth-209 was long thought to have the heaviest stable nucleus of any element, but in 2003, a research team, discovered that 209Bi undergoes alpha decay with a half-life of approximately 19 exayears (1.9×1019, approximately 19 quintillion years), over a billion times longer than the current estimated age of the universe.' - If… post humanity, an intelligent being pursues the discovery of homosapiens or more broadly anything which has ever inhabited the earth, they will not find any trace of ancient gods of any sort. However for the next 19 quintillion a record of the Bismuth-209’s radioactive trace will remain a scar on this Earth.
