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.
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?
* 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
