Young Earth creationists such as Ken Ham and Doug Phillips believe that God created the Earth within the last ten thousand years, literally as described in the Genesis creation narrative, within the approximate time-frame of biblical genealogies detailed for example in the Ussher chronology.
Most young Earth creationists believe that the universe has a similar age as the Earth.
A few assign a much older age to the universe than to Earth. Creationist cosmologies give the universe an age consistent with the Ussher chronology and other young Earth time frames. Other young Earth creationists believe that the Earth and the universe were created with the appearance of age, so that the world appears to be much older than it is, and that this appearance is what gives the geological findings and other methods of dating the Earth and the universe their much longer timelines.
Old Earth creationism Main article: Old Earth creationism Old Earth creationism holds that the physical universe was created by God, but that the creation event described in the Book of Genesis is to be taken figuratively.
This group generally believes that the age of the universe and the age of the Earth are as described by astronomers and geologistsbut that details of modern evolutionary theory are questionable. Gap creationism Gap creationism, also called "restoration creationism," holds that life was recently created on a pre-existing old Earth.
This version of creationism relies on a particular interpretation of Genesis 1: It is considered that the words formless and void in fact denote waste and ruin, taking into account the original Hebrew and other places these words are used in the Old Testament.
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Gap theorists can therefore agree with the scientific consensus regarding the age of the Earth and universe, while maintaining a literal interpretation of the biblical text.
This is thought to be "the world that then was" mentioned in 2 Peter 3: Day-age creationism Day-age creationism states that the "six days" of the Book of Genesis are not ordinary hour days, but rather much longer periods for instance, each "day" could be the equivalent of millions, or billions of years of human time.
The physicist Gerald Schroeder is one such proponent of this view. Progressive creationism Progressive creationism holds that species have changed or evolved in a process continuously guided by God, with various ideas as to how the process operated—though it is generally taken that God directly intervened in the natural order at key moments in Earth history.
This view accepts most of modern physical science including the age of the Earth, but rejects much of modern evolutionary biology or looks to it for evidence that evolution by natural selection alone is incorrect.
Philosophic and scientific creationism Main article: Creation science Creation science, or initially scientific creationism, is a pseudoscience      that emerged in the s with proponents aiming to have young Earth creationist beliefs taught in school science classes as a counter to teaching of evolution.
Common features of Creation science argument include: Neo-creationism Neo-creationism is a pseudoscientific movement which aims to restate creationism in terms more likely to be well received by the public, by policy makers, by educators and by the scientific community.Peter Gray is a research professor at Boston College, and author of Free to Learn (Basic Books, ) and Psychology (Worth Publishers, a college textbook now in its 7th edition).
