One of three possible ideas

1. Old Earth creationism - the belief that the origins of earth are divine in nature, yet do not contradict with any scientific findings.

2. Young Earth creationism - the belief that the word of the Bible, or any similar holy book, is literal and that the world was created in about six thousand years. This belief basically says that any testable data showing that the world is older than six thousand years is wrong. Frequently deals with faith more than science, and when science is invoked, it is typically misused or misinterpreted.

3. intelligent design
1. If one were to suppose that, to God, a day is more than twenty-four hours (which is possible because the sun was not created until the fourth day), then one could say that the Bible does not contradict scientific findings.

2. When a fake plaster cast of a human footprint next to a dinosaur's was used jokingly as a cover for a book by the late Stephen J. Gould, a staunch pro-evolutionist, creationists lauded the use as proof that scientists believe in creationism, and that humans and dinosaurs coexisted, whereas in reality, almost no paleobiologists believe so.
