ETHICS and the BIBLE
Young Earthers claim that the earth (the entire universe, in fact) is only about 6000 years old, a claim made on the strength of the Bible—specifically, the Book of Genesis. This of course conflicts with massive geologic (and other) evidence showing the earth to be hundreds of millions of years old (with the universe at about 13.7 BILLION years).
Young earthers cite creation of the earth (and universe) on the basis of the account as recorded in Genesis according to which the earth was created in seven days, days as we know them today. They do not believe that their seven ‘days’ may have been much longer periods of time as measured by another criterion. They further explain the geologic record as observed in the earth’s lithosphere as being the record since Noah’s flood.
