The universe and earth are just crammed full of this kind of old JUNK that has worn out after creation.

Adam may have been an adult, but he wasnt old, worn out, or dead.

<bq>

Dead and dying stars

Stacks of dead coral

Worn out rocks

Stacks of erosion sediments

Layers of dead animal fossils

Layers of dead plant fossils

Ripped apart continents

Decay of orbital motions

Decay of the elements

Appearance of Newly Created Rock?

<bq>

* Solid, not liquid; cooled, not hot.

* Isotopic abundances of newly cooled rock

o lots of U-238, K-40, Rb-87, Np-237

o very little Pb-206, Ar-40, Sr-87, Bi-208

* Not already eroded, weathered, changed

o No short-term annual layers (varves)

o No accumulations into long-term layering

o No long-term accumulations of chemical layers (e.g., salts)

o Not metamorphosed by long duration heat/pressure

* Not embedded with fossils of dead organisms

o no large-scale embedded fossils of plants and animals

o no microfossils such as comprise limestone and chalk
