Astronomy proves that the world is much older than 6000 years, as does geology.
Those fundamentalist who believe te world is only 6000 years old follow the teachcings of bishop Usher of England, who, using the the geneolgies put
forth in the bible calculated the age of the earth to be only 6000 years old. He apparently took the bible literally, ad didn't allow for
generations that might be left out for various reasons.
