The age of the earth can be estimated by taking the first 5 days of creation, then following genealogies from Adam to Abraham in Genesis 5 and 11, then adding in the time from Abraham to today.
Adam was created on Day 6. If we add up the dates from Adam to Abraham, we get about 2,000 years. Whether Christian or secular, most scholars would agree that Abraham lived about 2,000 B.C. (4,000 years ago).
So a simple calculation renders roughly 6000 years.
