Imagine you compress a spring. The spring experiences a slight increase in mass, nothing which we can detect without high tech instruments. This increase in mass times the speed of light squared, is equal to the energy put into the spring when we compressed it.
That's kinda what E=mc^2 is about. I'm not very good at explaining, and English isn't my mother tongue, so someone tell me if I got something wrong up there.

After the big bang, there was only hydrogen. Those atoms fussed into heavier elements inside stars, thus creating new elements. The hydrogen in your body might be billions years old. The carbon, oxygen and other elements? Not so much. Not as those elements.

The new elements are the same exact matter as the hydrogen, but atomically re-arranged. The same amount of mass still exists.
Technically, it's "MASS" can never be created or destroyed, which means that there is a finite amount of stuff that can exist, meaning, in a very loose sense, matter cannot be created or destroyed. It's current form can, but all the matter that was there still exists in a different form. If you burn a log, it's converted into smoke and ash, but there's still the exact same amount of matter.

I really need to edit new reaction pics
Even if you were correct, hydrogen is what makes up those other elements, so split them all up and we're basically made up of only hydrogen, which age dates back to the big bang. The point of the picture is to say that while we as beings are not that old, the components we're made of are as old as the universe.

the Big Bang Theory is the result of the phenomenon known as redshifting.
All galaxies outside of our local group are redshifted, and therefore travelling away from us. All of them.
this implies the universe is expanding, which in turn implies that the universe originated from a singularity (the result of playing the universe's expansion in reverse).
main sequence stars like our Sun don't have enough heat to fuse atoms (the heat is in fact three orders of magnitude too low), but are able to do so through quantum tunneling.
fusion cannot create energy in elements heavier than iron (just as fission cannot create energy from elements lighter than iron). The reason stars can't produce heavy elements is due to the fact that gravitational pressure would crush them REGARDLESS of their temperature. Heavy elements are created when large stars collapse, resulting in a powerful shockwave explosion known as a supernova (side note, this is the most energetic phenomenon in the universe).
no heavy elements come from the Big Bang. the Big Bang produced hydrogen, helium, and a little lithium. main sequence fusion created everything up to iron, and everything after that is the result of stars collapsing and exploding.

I am shocked. Mainly because this sounds scientific as shit and completely valid, but also because of all the bullshit I've been spoon fed from a source I can't remember. It wasn't some bullshit source though, I just can't put the name of the scientist in my head.
But I guess I learn something new every day. I did know about the expansion of the universe though, and the whole thing playing it in reverse.

Bad news? My friend, you bring me knowledge, the only known cure for ignorance! That's good news. I mean, I just seem to have overlooked this part completely. Otherwise I consider myself at least somewhat above average when it comes to knowledge about space. Personal favorite space phenomenon (or what ya call it) are quasars and/or blazars.
Also, sorry but I have 1.0 AM humor and can't get over that fact that you're graduating with a BS in physics. Bullshit physics sounds like an accurate description of quantum physics though, that shit's magic. But on a serious note, that's awesome. We need more astro physicists in this world, gotta get them humies on mars.
And alright, I don't think I have any questions but thanks! I'll continue on a quest to cure any further ignorance.
