How old is the earth?

There are 2 competing ideas about the age of the world. Those who believe in evolution tell us that the earth is about 6 billion years! Their evidence comes from the dating of rocks. Creation tells us that the earth is relatively young - approximately 6,000 years. The evidence for a relatively young earth comes from the bible and confirmed by the presence of carbon in materials that were previously thought to be extremely old. The 2 ideas are also different in another respect. Evolution espouses the Big Bang theory as the source of what we see on earth. Creation acknowledges order and the power of God as the master designer of the physical laws as well as the biotic and abiotic things. Where do you stand?
