    Young Earth creationism is the religious belief that Heaven, Earth, and life on Earth were created by a direct act of God dating between 6000[1] and 10,000 years ago. Its adherents are those Christians and Jews[citation needed] who believe that God created the Earth in six 24-hour days, taking the Hebrew text of Genesis as a literal account.

    Some adherents believe that existing evidence in the natural world today supports a strict interpretation of scriptural creation as historical fact, or that the scientific evidence supporting evolution, geological uniformitarianism, and other theories which are at odds with a literal interpretation of the Genesis creation account, are either flawed or misinterpreted.[2]

    Many Young Earth creationists are active in the development of creation science, a creationist endeavor that holds that the events associated with supernatural creation can be evidenced and modelled through an interpretation of the scientific method.

    Young Earth creationists (YECs) claim that the lack of support for a Young Earth theory in professional science journals or among professional science organizations is due to discrimination and censorship.[3][4][5][6]

    The overwhelming scientific consensus is that creationist claims have no scientific validity. A statement by 68 national and international science academies lists as evidence-based facts that have been established by numerous observations and independently derived experimental results from a multitude of scientific disciplines, without any contradiction from scientific evidence, that the Earth is approximately 4.5 billion years old and has shown continuing change, that life appeared on Earth at least 2.5 billion years ago, and has subsequently taken many forms, all of which continue to evolve, and that the genetic code of all organisms living today, including humans, clearly indicates their common primordial origin.[7]
