Saturn's C Ring approaching the planet at 100 km/year

Saturn's rings have to be carded at the door. Their age has long been seriously questioned. Back when the claim that  the Earth was billions of years old became popular, of course, the knee-jerk, quickly standardized view was that the rings of Saturn were about four billion years old. Of course. Then came the age of powerful observatories, space telescopes, and NASA's fly-by missions. Enter data. Today, it is increasingly difficult to maintain the more recent claims that the rings are 50 to 100 million years old.

A faint young sun would have kept the Earth in a deep freeze

Earth would never recover or thaw from a faint young sunA star like our Sun has about ten billion years worth of nuclear fuel. Billions of years of nuclear fusion would change the Sun's characteristics.

Millions of years of missing Supernova Remnants including Stage 3s

An explosion appeared in the night sky in 1054 A.D. as a supernova remnant (SNR) and formed the Crab Nebula. Old-earth scientists have measured and calculated the expected rate that stars would explode. However, if the universe, and particularly the Milky Way Galaxy, is billions of years old, the vast majority of SNRs (like the Crab Nebula) that allegedly should exist, are missing.
