I'd like to think that the apparent security weaknesses in many PHP applications could be attributed to the fact that PHP was already around back when web security practices were more primitive.

Thus, in your career you tend see more PHP apps that were badly-implemented.

Agreed. The older a PHP application is, the more likely it is to have incredibly serious security vulnerabilities. But I've looked at and broken plenty of vulnerable applications that were written within the past couple years.
