Why not?

The same principle applies to the elements as it does to anything else in the riddle - it has an indirect affect.
no it does not. iron and steel will not decay.

If two hours ago, it was as long after one o'clock in the afternoon as it was before one o'clock in the morning, what time would it be now?

In the context of lasting "forever" it will.

The statement "iron and steel will not decay" applies to a limit of time.

Nothing can last forever, forever isn't defined.

Atlast you got it.
6,060. There are six men who each have six baskets. This equals 36 baskets. Each basket has six cats which equals 216 cats. Each cat has six kittens which equals 1,296 kittens. Therefore the kittens represent 5,184 legs. The cats represent 864 legs. The men represent 12 legs. The sum total is 6,060 legs.
haaaaaaahahahhaa
how is that basic maths.

like i said, in the context of lasting forever, of course they will stop existing. but they will not decay, ie the metophor of "bite and gnaw"

9pm.

it would be 7pm that is 6 hours after 1pm, but 6 hours before 1am.

If you are referring to 7pm as 2 hours before (which you are) then you must be 2 hours ahead of 7pm therefore it would be 9pm now as it were.

But it isn't time that does anything, it's all the other things that time enables to have an impact on the elements - Which does gnaw or bite or whateva.

no it doesnt, because iron and steel cannot be gnawed or bitten. fullstop.

9pm.
Oh you got it.
Nine o'clock. Since there are twelve hours between the two times, and half of that time equals six, then the halfway mark would have to be seven o'clock. If it were seven o'clock, two hours ago, the time would now be nine o'clock

because it doesnt happen. maybe to objects made out of iron and steel, but not to iron and steel itself

I'm small and I'm brown and I live in a shell.
There's another one like me who lives here as well.

From house to house he goes,
A messenger small and slight.
And whether it rains or snows,
He sleeps outside at night.
What am I?
