We believe the inerrant word of God clearly states that the entire cosmos, including all the matter and energy contained therein, was created in six days. We identify these days of creation as six 24-hour periods of time. God could have created everything instantaneously fully formed, but as many Bible scholars have indicated
We are told that the universe is 13.8 billion years old and the earth trails behind at 4.6 billion years. These are well-known, accepted scientific “facts.” They appear in all our science textbooks and are propagated in all forms of media with few exceptions. Young Earth Creationists (YEC) stand on the foundational Word of God, acknowledging a biblical time frame of several thousand years. These creationists are said to demonstrate the highest form of ignorance in many circles.
