Moon-dust argument no longer useful

For years, one popular evidence for a recent creation was to argue that the amount of dust on the moon must have accumulated in less than 10,000 years.
The claim was based on early estimates of the rate at which dust from space accumulates on the moon's surface. If the moon really is billions of years old there was concern that the Apollo moon landers would sink into a deep layer of dust. However, these early estimates were wrong, and by the time of the Apollo landings, NASA was not worried about sinking spacecraft. The new data makes this argument for a young moon invalid.
