Long-age proponents will dismiss this sort of evidence for a young age of the earth by arguing that the assumptions about the past do not apply in these cases.

In other words, age is not really a matter of scientific observation but an argument about our assumptions about the unobserved past.

However, the 4th reference of that article, the one you claim proves that DNA cannot last for millions of years never makes this claim.

It only speaks of ways in which DNA is damaged in living cells - (which fossils are clearly not).

Evidence of very recent or even present formation of oil is consistent with a young earth.

Coal is a powerful evidence for Noah's Flood; the evolutionary story of it forming from material laid down in peat bog swamps over eons of time just does not stack up.

Ages of millions of years are all calculated by assuming the rates of change of processes in the past were the same as we observe today—called the principle of uniformitarianism.

Radical folding at Eastern Beach, near Auckland in New Zealand, indicates that the sediments were soft and pliable when folded, inconsistent with a long time for their formation. I trust it answers your questions (as much as it is possible to do so with As I see it,just about all the churches in North America are heated either oil or natural gas which has been found by companies using evolutionary concepts.

the age of the earth and the universe, and that includes the ones we have listed here.

Although age indicators are called ‘clocks’ they aren’t, because all ages result from calculations that necessarily involve making assumptions about the past.

The assumptions behind the evidences presented here cannot be proved, but the fact that such a wide range of different phenomena all much younger ages than are currently generally accepted, provides a strong case for questioning those accepted ages (currently 13.77 billion years for the universe and 4.543 billion years for the solar system).

Also, a number of the evidences, rather than giving any estimate of age, challenge the assumption of slow-and-gradual uniformitarianism, upon which all deep-time dating methods depend.
