"Why is the biggest desert only 4,000 years old?"

a- I never heard this before, give me a non-ICR source

b- If it's true, so what? Deserts are changing, moving, popping up here and there all the time. Nature is not an unchanging entity. Such logic is dependent on the assumption that nature is a constant, which is not the case.

"2. Why is oil still pressurized when it loses all of it's pressure in about 10,000 years?"

Pressurized in what kind of rock? Does this assume the amount of oil is not increasing? Does this assume that there is a large and active source for the oil to diffuse out? Give me a non-ICR source.

"...Then how could the lost squadron, that landed in Greenland durring WW2, be under 263 feet of ice if they only landed 48 years ago? Shouldn't they have been under only 4.5 feet of ice if the scientists are correct?"

Buried under glacial flow, perhaps? I assume you were referring to the rate at which ice accumulates from the sky (snow) however the ice sheets themselves are sliding around profusely.
