age of the earth
D&C 77 states that this earth has a temporal existence of 7,000 years; Many Mormons are in line with other Young Earth Creationists. The church has no public official statement on the age of the earth, but many church leaders have suggested the earth to be young. These views conflict with the age of 4.54 billion years measured using independently cross-validated geochronological methods including radiometric dating. Additionally, early leaders taught that the fossils found are remnants of other worlds since the earth was constructed with matter from other worlds.
