I'm just curious to know, How old is earth according to hinduism?
As of science it is 4,500,000,000.
If we calculate this 4.5 billion years into Hinduism, 1041 Mahayugas, which is equal to 1 kalpa i.e 1 day of lord Brahma. But as of Hinduism, 50 years of lord Brahma have elapsed and this is the first 'day' of the 51st year.
According to Hinduism calculations based on age of lord brahma, age of earth must be 155,521,972,949,115 years. If lord brahma created earth on his first day of his birth.
I found one link which states, according to Hinduism earth is created and destroyed for regular intervals of time. Is that true?
Are there any texts that mention about age of earth in Hinduism? Or
Did Hinduism mention when and where it was created (any belief)?
Please give brief explanation on this topic.
