Is Wikipedia wrong about the half life of Gold?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (18803points) 1 month ago

My virtual assistant states that some isotopes of Gold have a half life of ~196 days.

Some Gold has been in the earth for billions of years.

One entry in Wikipedia says that AU ~196 is functionally stable.

Can you explain further?
Do all atoms have a half life?
