FYI, they shouldn't be conflated.
I'll play the game, then (at least, until I go on my lunch break here in a bit)...
define 'created?' the current cosmological model has the earth being 'created' via the typical rocky-planet model, in which meteors and other rocky-materials form a mass as a proto-planet in the early days of the solar system. this isn't a quick process in the least-- try to start gathering rocks and tell me how quickly you have something the size of a continent... it's going to take you MUCH longer than seven days, and that's with dedicated effort and non-random. when you randomize things and throw in the vastness of space, you're looking at at LEAST millions of years, if not billions (I'm not completely up on the number for that, but I'm a geneticist, not a cosmologist)
