"Older than dirt" not really that old in the grand scheme of things


Dirt in my neighborhood of Puget Sound, scoured to the bedrock by the last glaciation, is less than 15,000 years old.

A co-worker of mine commonly uses the expression “since dirt was clean”. I’m guessing that would predate the appearance of life on Earth, which would be pretty old.
