Anything older on Earth than these 5 billion years is wrong.
4.5 but who'se counting🙂
I wonder also if the stars really are older than the pegged age of the universe, there are signs in the CBR record of possible other universes banging into ours, there are circular areas in the CBR that have no present theory other than that to account for them.
So If it banged into our universe, I assume the theory would be universes are like upper dimensional bubbles and in a multiverse world, there could be uncountable number of other universes in the same Urspace, like foam bubbles in soap so some could touch our outer 'skin', which would be a skin only in a higher dimensional sense.
Anyway, if that is true, could it also be true that some stars from that universe, presumably older than ours, have penetrated the 'skin' and popped into our universe, uninvited and it would be samples of an actual other universe.
Just a wild theory I pooped out just now🙂
