No, but it arrived a surprisingly short time after the world cooled. The earliest simple life forms are thought to have arrived/developed C3.7 billion years ago. The Earth is 4.6 billion years old (probably).
No, I don't think so that life is as old as earth.
The planet’s coming into existence is recounted in the Bible with the simple statement: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Gen 1:1) Just how long ago the starry heavens and the earth were created is not stated in the Bible. Scientists estimate the age of some rocks as being three and a half billion years, and the earth itself as being about four to four and a half billion or more years.
