Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), the universal carrier of genetic information, is present in all organisms while they are alive. When they die, their DNA begins to decay under the influence of hydrolysis and oxidation. The speed of this decay varies on a number of factors. Sometimes, the DNA will be gone within one century, and in other conditions, it will persist for as many as one million years. The average amount of time detectable DNA will persist though is somewhere in the middle; given physiological salt concentrations, neutral pH, and a temperature of 15°C, it would take around 100,000 years for all the DNA in a sample to decay to undetectable levels.If fossils of the dinosaurs were less than 6,000 years old, detectable fragments of DNA should be present in a sizable percent of dinosaur fossils, especially in the Arcticand Antarctic regions where the decay of DNA can be slowed down 10-25 fold. A claim that soft tissues in a Tyrannosaurus fossil had been recovered in 2005has since been shown to be mistakensupporting the idea that dinosaur fossils are extremely oldMore recent work appears to support Schweitzer’s claim with limited speculation on how the DNA survived.Prior to this was a report on DNA extraction from a 3.8 million-year-old ostrich egg shells
That and 32 more evidence!!

YEC's would just claim that DNA decayed faster in the past, or that there is a flaw with how it is measured.

Not really. The bible is the ultimate arbiter of truth, given to man by divine revelation. Unlike science which, while useful at times, is also often wrong, the bible is never incorrect as evidenced by the thousands of fufilled prophecies. The only reasonable conclusion one can draw from this is that the earth is indeed ~6000 years old.

The Bible doesn't say the Earth is 6k years old, another YEC busted!

So the ~6000 years is drawn from the timeline of events as depicted in the bible. Since the timeline is necessarily true by being described in the bible, the logical conclusion is that the earth must be ~6000 years old.

WRONG

Genesis 1:1

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters."

And THEN after 4.5 Billion years he created Adam and Eve

Where in the bible does it state that God waited 4.5 billion years? Oh right, it doesn't. Nice cherry picking btw

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

The bible is unambiguous in all respects. If our world were created over a duration that was longer than what we know to be a day, the bible would state so. However it doesn't and unambiguously uses the word day. Moreover God would not need billions of years to form our world so why would he? Frankly you're just being illogical

I am not, I am being logical. Yom is not a 24 hour day but an era.

Yom can mean several things, but most commonly refers to a 24-hour period known as a day. You're being irrational when you infer things from the bible that just aren't there in order to fit a false world creation narrative.

The Zebra along with the elephant's and hyena have roamed these lands now for some Tuesday 6000 years ago.

I think "God's days" are a convenient and arbitrary made up term to smear the word of God.
