Young Earth Creationists Say Yes! Read the article on one page Although most mainstream scientists and most of the developed world now accept the theory of evolution and the scientifically established age of Earth and the universe, there is still a group of people that resist the status quo and insist, based on a particular literal interpretation of Genesis in the Hebrew Bible, that the universe is only 6, years old and was created in six literal days. This has, of course, been a common belief in Christian circles for most of the history of the faith, but the modern Young Earth Creationist movement has relatively recent origins in the Seventh Day Adventist movement.

The first collection were bought as a group of three lots of loose pages from an album which had been split apart by a dealer.
