Old Timer

It's like Biblical literalists live inside a bubble. I came across this site making the astounding conclusion that the Sahara is the oldest desert and is only 4000 years old

If the Earth is billions of years old, why is there not an older desert on the Earth? 

Why is the oldest desert on Earth only 4,000 years old? 

All one needs to do is put those words 'oldest desert' into Google and you'll discover that the oldest desert is not the Sahara and is millions of years older than the free Christian teaching would have.
Having endured arid or semi-arid conditions for roughly 55-80 million years, the Namib is also the oldest desert in the world.
The oldest freshwater lake is Lake Baikal which, like a lot of natural features appearing in this blog, has made a previous world beating appearance due to its size.
Lake Baikal formed somewhere 20-25 million years ago, during the Mesozoic

and the other lake making a second appearance, Earth's oldest super-clean water system reached in Lake Vostok; twenty million years old
The oldest ocean is the Panthalassa Ocean, 220 million years ago in the Triassic era
Finke River in the West Macdonnell Ranges near Alice Springs is the oldest river,  parts are believed to date back 340 million years, well before the time of dinosaurs.

The oldest mountain range is the Barberton Belt aka the Barberton Greenstone Belt. It's 3.5 billion years old
The oldest forest discovered is the Gilboa Forest, 350 million years old
