Many fundamentalist Christians tell me that the world is six thousand years old. They say the Bible says so, indirectly, and they show this by comparing genealogies from Adam to Jesus. These add up to 4,000 years, and Jesus was born 2,000 years ago. I do NOT believe this because SCIENCE says otherwise.
