Why Does the Age of the Earth Matter?
A comparison of Genesis 1 and Exodus 20 shows clearly that they speak of the very same event that lasted six days.
During these days God created the heaven and the earth, the sea and all its life.
Heaven and earth would include the stars, planets and the entire universe.
Earth would include all living beings.
What is more, the Lord Jesus Himself said that God created humans male and female at the beginning of creation.
Thus, the biblical worldview begins with a supernatural creation of a perfect world in six days (not six million years, or anything like that.
All other views of Genesis are problematic as they have the consequences of the Fall before the Fall.
