Your all wrong, according to fora.tv Rach Sussman is the oldest living organism
Giant sequoias are the world's largest trees in terms of total volume. They grow to an average height of 50–85 metres (160–279 ft) and 6–8 metres (20–26 ft) in diameter. Record trees have been measured to be 94.8 metres (311 ft) in height and over 17 metres (56 ft) in diameter. The oldest known giant sequoia based on ring count is 3,500 years old.
Any critter that has survived unchanged for over 300 million years must be pretty remarkable. Cockroaches are exactly that, and as much as they disgust us and potentially harm us, you still have to admire what they can do.

If you take the info in the OP then I would say cock roaches would be older by about 300 million years.
I determine the oldest living creature as an individual...not a cloned organism.

But surely, this can't be so!
The world is only 6,000 years old, don't you know? This is obviously just a trick by Satan to confuse us!
