Created as in didn't exist and then there's the big ball of rock we call Earth.
Again, I'm asking for the evidence that Earth wasn't
created in seven days. I'm familiar with the cosmological models and the physics and geology that play into it. But as far as I know, there is no evidence that the actual creation didn't take seven days. The seven day creation would obviously involve "God" or some other thing which makes the standard model fly out the window.
That being said, I find it much more likely that it took millions of years for Earth to form and be created, but I just find it really interesting that some people immediately completely dismiss something which they can neither prove or disprove (on both sides).
