In the vedas the holy trinity comprises of brahma, visnu and siva.
The Brahma aspect of it is the creating principle, earth included.
I don't know the exact figure but one day of Brahma is equal to several
million earth years!

Whoever wrote the Book of Exodus must have, because that is the bases for the fourth commandment, that because God created the heaven and the earth and all the things in it, in six days and rested the seventh day and hallowed it, we must keep the seventh day holy.

Given that the Aramaic word translated to the English "day" in Genesis actually just means "period of time", I don't think anyone can truthfully say that even the ancient Hebrews believed that it was created in 7 24-hour periods.
