Young-Earth creationists (YECs) believe that God created the Earth and all life on it in six 24-hour days, exactly as described in Genesis, and that the universe (and by extension the Earth) is less than 10,000 years old.
Scientific difficulties with Young Earth Creationism
- The Great Andromeda Galaxy is 2 million light years away. Other galaxies are further away. How did the light from there reach us in 6 thousand years?
- Cosmologists have found evidence that the Big Bang happened over 13 billion years ago. Is it likely that so many respected scientists are wrong and a few theologians are right?
- Radiometric dating show that the Earth and solar system are over 4 billion years old. Geologists see evidence of many different geological processes taking place over millions of years, hundreds of millions of years and thousands of millions of years. Is it likely that so many respected scientists are wrong and a few theologians are right?
- Fossil remains and artifacts in the Americas show that humanity migrated to the Americas thousands of years before Young-Earth creationists believe when the Earth was created. Does the biblical textual evidence outweigh physical evidence?
