Young Earth creationism
Young Earth creationism (YEC) is the religious belief that the Universe, Earth and all life on Earth were created by direct acts of God during a relatively short period, between 5,700 and 10,000 years ago. Its primary adherents are those Christians and Jews who, using a literal interpretation of the Genesis creation narrative as a basis, believe that God created the Earth in six 24-hour days. Young Earth creationists differ from other creationists in that they believe in a strict literal interpretation of the Bible regarding the age of the Earth. In contrast, old Earth creationists interpret the six creation days of the Book of Genesis metaphorically and accept the scientifically-determined ages of the Earth and of the universe.Since the mid-20th century, young Earth creationists - starting with Henry M. Morris (1918-2006) - have devised and promoted a pseudoscientific explanation called ""creation science"" as a basis for a religious belief in a supernatural, geologically recent creation. Scientific evidence from numerous scientific disciplines contradicts Young Earth creationism, showing the age of the universe as 7001137990000000000♠13.799±0.021 billion years, the formation of the Earth as at least 4.5 billion years ago, and the first appearance of life on Earth as occurring at least 2.5 billion years ago.Between 1982 and 2014, successive surveys have found that between 40% and 47% of adults in the United States inclined to the view that ""God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years"" when Gallup asked for their views on the origin and development of human beings. A 2011 Gallup survey reports that 30% of U.S. adults say they interpret the Bible literally. These beliefs are often contradictory. A 2009 poll by Harris Interactive found that 39% of Americans agreed with the statement that ""God created the universe, the earth, the sun, moon, stars, plants, animals, and the first two people within the past 10 000 years"", yet only 18% of the Americans polled agreed with the statement ""The earth is less than 10 000 years old"".
