Young-Earth creationism attempts to incorporate certain discoveries of modern astronomy and geology within a literal reading of the Bible. They use scientific dating methods paired with scripture to attempt to prove the Earth is between 6,000 and 10,000 years old. Stories from Genesis, including the flood, are used as factual accounts to explain such geological features as the formation of strata. Young-Earth creationists are often asked to explain the existence of dinosaurs if the Earth is truly young. They maintain that humans and dinosaurs roamed the Earth at the same time, and back up their beliefs by turning to ancient writings and artwork that depict humans and dinosaurs together. Some have insisted there have been modern accounts of dinosaurs and humans living together in the Congo.
