Why are there craters on the surfaces of the Moon, Mercury, Mars, satellites of the giant planets, but they are almost absent on Earth?

Small meteors and meteorites burned up in the atmosphere and simply did not reach the Earth’s surface. But the atmosphere was not always there. There are a lot of craters on the Earth’s surface, many of which are quite large. Over time, they are destroyed by winds, vegetation, the world’s oceans, humans and other factors. Therefore, they do not look as obvious as on the Moon or other planets. Therefore, the statement that there are almost no craters on Earth is false.
