The first iteration

So some scientists have extracted DNA from a woolly mammoth and plan to create a clone. (Have they not seen Jurassic Park?) This comes up in discussion with RR, who is all excited because he heard on Christian radio how scientists know DNA can only survive for thousands if years, so they must have been wrong about earth being millions of years old, proving scripture accurate. He fails to see some obvious flaws in that logic- 1) science may have misjudged when woolly mammoths went extinct 2) they may have underestimated the time DNA can survive in certain conditions. What's more likely: #1 and/or #2 are correct or God didn't put dinosaurs and such in the arc?
