Yes, Our Sun and the Earth and planets are all about 5 billion years old. The universe is more than twice this old. Furthermore, elements heavier than iron are only formed from novas and supernovas. The fact that the Earth and our bodies have lots of elements heavier than iron shows that not only the Earth and Sun but our bodies were made from dust and gas from long-dead stars. It's amazing!

Mostly dead skin cells
dust is made from dead skin cells, it mostly happens when you are asleep. youre body repairs itself and gets rid of the old skin cells, then the dead skin cells are eventually… made into dust, and is therefore found mostly in corners of bedrooms.. etc...
Dust includes miscroscopic particles from the air that settles on objects or areas inside or outside. Outside, it can contain particles of earth, pulverized stone that turned… to dust, remnants of garbage or debris, broken down particles from leaves and plants, plant pollens, and chemicals used on lawns or industries. Interestingly, "dust" from volcanic eruption can be carried around the world and affect people in other countries. Inside, dust can contain air particles, lint from clothing, dead skin cells, dandruff from people, dander from pets and their dead skin cells, fur and human hair, and anything brought in from the outside. Dust mites are also in dust, where dust mites feed on people and pet's dead skin cells.
The nuclei of atoms that compose our bodies were once parts of stars. All nuclei beyond iron in atomic number, were in fact manufactured in supernovae.
I they made sod houses and lived in ditches
Both. The insane winds came and blew the topsoil off the ground and into the air, but i was kind of also dust and kinda also sand. Dirt, Sand, or Dust are all ok to say, but d…ust is usually what it is called.
The solar system
because they didn't know anything about them.
People evolved from plankton.
Hydrogen (and a little Helium).
If you're feeling poetic, you could say that. Current cosmological theory says the Earth is mainly composed of elements that were synthesized inside of a star that later explo…ded. Note that this includes (nearly) everything on Earth, including you.
According to Christianity, God used the Earth to make dust.
Yes. All the atoms in our bodies other than hydrogen were forged in the cores of stars.
Yes, we are "star stuff". People, and everything around us, aremade of stuff that has been IN stars. At the time of the Big Bang, the universe was made of mostlyhydrogen, a li…ttle helium, and a tiny trace of lithium. Thehydrogen collapsed under gravity to form stars. The energy of starsis nuclear fusion, which smashes light elements into heavier ones.At first, the hydrogen fused to make helium. After a long while,the stars would collapse into supernovas, and explode. Theexplosion would create even heavier elements, like nitrogen, carbonand oxygen, and even heavier elements like iron. The iron in our blood, the calcium in our bones, and the nitrogenand oxygen that we breathe came from the supernova explosions ofstars billions of years ago. Our atoms were blasted into space, andthen fell into new solar systems, and that material became "us" -and every atom of the Earth, Moon and planets as well. In fact,we've probably fallen into stars and been blasted into spaceseveral times in the 14+ billion years that have elapsed since theBig Bang.
