Mmmmmmm, yeah. The age of the planet Earth is precisely known. Very useful information when engaged in prediction and extrapolation relative to physical phenomena.
The trouble is that scientific facts have no inherent meaning, especially when used as a counterpoint to totally absurd conjecture involving an autonomous superphysical entity deliberately creating the universe at a specific point in linear time.

It does not matter, goddammit! There is no such thing as "4.54 billion years ago". Never was. Never will be. It's just numbers on a sheet of paper or computer screen.

There are no answers to any questions humans may have about the origins of life or the universe. As soon as the questions stop being asked, the answers are no longer necessary.
