How Old Is the Earth?

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

By faith, we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.

How old is the Earth? When did these things take place. Simply put, the Earth is about 6,000 years old. There is nearly universal agreement that Abraham lived around 2,000 b.C., or about 4,000 years ago. By following the genealogies from Adam to Abraham in Genesis 5 and 11, we get about 2,000 years. So, by adding the 2,000 years (Adam to Abraham) to the 4,000 years (Abraham to today), we arrive at about 6,000 years.
