It depends on who you ask, really. The Christians believe that the world is somewhere around 6,000 years old, therefore making it roughly 4,000 years in history before Christ. Many scholars disagree, with answers ranging from 1,000 to even 10,000 years before Jesus. These theories come from "doing the math" generation to generation mentioned in The Bible, along with dates and/or times specified by the writings in the Bible. If you were to ask someone who was not religous, the answers range from 10,000 years to well over 65 million. Carbon dating is a way that scientist figure out the age of material(s). The truth of it is, however, that science has, in the past, been wrong, meaning that two or more scientist carbon dated the same material and came up with different answers. So it really boils down to your personal beliefs.

(Disclaimer: The following portion is from a scientist,)

Actually the world is about 4.6 billion years old. If you are talking about how long humans (in their current form) have been around it's closer to 100,000 years. Humans have a rich history, the majority of which was hunting and foraging. Depending on how you define "history", it could be from when writing was invented, the birth of Christ, or the tens of thousands of years before homo sapiens started making written accounts.

No "the Christians" don't believe that the world is 6,000 years old. I don't even know where that nonsense came from.
