YOUNG EARTH CREATIONISM
Creationist Critiques of Radiometric Dating
The most Biblically-literalist and scientifically-incompetent form of creationism is young-earth creationism, whose promoters believe the Earth is 6,000-10,000 years old. Advocates include the Institute for Creation Research and Answers in Genesis.
