Earth is the third planet from the Sun in our solar system. It is the only planet — or, indeed, the only place in the universe — that we know harbors life.

Scientists estimate the age of the Earth to be approximately 4.57 billion years. This is roughly one third of the estimated age of the universe, 13.7 billion years. These estimates directly contradict the views of young earth creationists that the universe (including Earth and its life) was created by God 6,000 to 10,000 years ago in accordance with the book of Genesis.

In some religions the Earth is worshipped as a deity.
