The evidence for a young universe just keeps piling up:
http://news.sciencemag.org...

"Towering mountains of water ice rise up to 3500 meters tall on Pluto, above smooth plains covered in veneers of nitrogen and methane ice, NASA"s New Horizons team announced today. The discovery, along with the finding that parts of the dwarf planet"s surface are crater-free and therefore relatively young, points to a place that has been geologically reworked in the recent past. "It could even be active today," said John Spencer, a New Horizons team member at Southwest Research Institute (SWRI) in Boulder, Colorado, at a press conference today at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland."

"Radioactive elements in both bodies" interiors could provide some of the heat needed for geological mountain building or ice flows that repave the surface. But Pluto, and especially Charon, are far too small for this heat to persist. The giant impact thought to have formed the two worlds could also provide a source of energy, but that probably happened billions of years ago."

If these co-planets were billions of years old then their surfaces would be rough. QED.

I applaud you on your cherry picking skills. Remember all those stars in the sky? Well NASA says they are millions of LY away. NASA also says the speed of light is ~300000m/s. NASA assumes, like the rest of science, that it was always constant. Do the math then. That means it would take millions of years for the star's light to reach Earth. Millions more than 6000.
Imagine there's no heaven
It isn't hard to do
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Imagine all the people
Livin' for today
dee-em

Parts are smooth because it is a ski resort destination for the Europaeans. No, not the Europeans. Lol.
