Precambrian geology

Greetings ASA gentlefolk

A commonly stated belief among YECs is that Precambrian rocks are pre
flood. So I have two questions for those YECs who adhere to this (and I
am aware that not all do).

Precambrian rocks, like younger successions, consist of sedimentary,
igneous rocks, and metamorphic rocks. For these most part these closely
resemble younger rocks and thus have formed by similar processes. The
main difference is that they lack shelly fossils. If they were formed
by completely different processes, why this similarity?

A similar question is posed by supposed by "post flood" rocks, whether
you hold that flood sedimentation ended in the Carboniferous, Permian,
Cretaceous, Paleogene, or Pliocene. In each case the rocks "post flood"
are very similar to older rocks and contain evidence for similar
formative processes operating "post flood" as those supposedly operating
during the flood (and, for that matter "pre flood" in the Precambrian).
Once again, why the similarity?

How come?

Another way to ask these questions is "What unique features exist in
Cambrian to Carboniferous?Permian?Paleogene/Pliocene rocks that shows
they must have been formed in a global flood"?

God Bless
