Soil is in large part decomposing plant and animal matter, together with all sorts of microorganisms. Where did that come from? The creationist explanation doesn't make sense.

Presumably, the first land plants in the evolutionary narrative, around 700 million years ago, must have grown on soil that was not made of decomposed plant and animal matter, maybe bacteria and protists (these are not mentioned in the Genesis account).
