One Answer Radiometric dating techniques (and not just one) associated with investigation of materials originating on Earth and from space allow for the estimate of 4.567 billion years (4.567 ร— 109 years). A link can be found below which has more information on how the figure was arrived at. This estimate of the age of the Earth is broadly accepted by the vast majority of scientists and scientific organizations around the world. Another AnswerThe Christian and Jewish view of the age of the Earth is widely varied; they fall at some point on a range from acceptance of the mainstream scientific view to a belief that the Earth is around 6,000 years old based on chronologies in The Bible. In Sikhism, the age of the Earth is not a major concern. God created the Earth no matter how long the Earth has existed. Creation occurs repeatedly throughout time according to Buddhist beliefs. There is no philosophy or doctrine on the age of the Earth. With Jainism, the Earth and the universe endure under the compulsion of their own nature. There is also no specific philosophy on the age of the Earth.

Some religious groups believe in Archbishop Ussher's biblical estimate of the Earth's age being 6,000 years, but the scientific consensus is about 4.5 billion years based on radiometric dating, fossil records and the estimated formation date of the other planets in the solar system.

There are two contradictory accounts of the age of earth. One is the scientific account, which claims that the earth is approximately 4.5 billion years old. The other is a biblical account, which claims that the earth is approximately 6000 years old. The scientific position is that there is overwhelming evidence for their view, while Christian Science points to contradictions and anomalies in that position.
