To counter the common misunderstanding that the creation–evolution controversy was a simple dichotomy of views, with "creationists" set against "evolutionists", Eugenie Scott of the National Center for Science Education produced a diagram and description of a continuum of religious views as a spectrum ranging from extreme literal Biblical creationism to materialist evolution, grouped under main headings.
This was used in public presentations, then published in 1999 in Reports of the NCSE.
In 2009 Scott produced a revised continuum taking account of these issues, emphasising that intelligent design creationism overlaps other types, and each type is a grouping of various beliefs and positions.
The revised diagram is labelled to shows a spectrum relating to positions on the age of the Earth, and the part played by special creation as against evolution. Creationism: An Introduction, Young Earth creationists such as Ken Ham and Doug Phillips believe that God created the Earth within the last ten thousand years, literally as described in the Genesis creation narrative, within the approximate time-frame of biblical genealogies (detailed for example in the Ussher chronology).
Creationist cosmologies give the universe an age consistent with the Ussher chronology and other young Earth time frames.
Other young Earth creationists believe that the Earth and the universe were created with the appearance of age, so that the world appears to be much older than it is, and that this appearance is what gives the geological findings and other methods of dating the Earth and the universe their much longer timelines.
Progressive creationism can be held in conjunction with hermeneutic approaches to the Genesis creation narrative such as the day-age creationism or framework/metaphoric/poetic views.
that emerged in the 1960s with proponents aiming to have young Earth creationist beliefs taught in school science classes as a counter to teaching of evolution.
The physicist Gerald Schroeder is one such proponent of this view.
This group generally believes that the age of the universe and the age of the Earth are as described by astronomers and geologists, but that details of modern evolutionary theory are questionable.
Gap creationism, also called "restoration creationism," holds that life was recently created on a pre-existing old Earth.
Creation Ministries International promotes young Earth views in Australia, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, the US, and the UK.
Among Roman Catholics, the Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation promotes similar ideas.
In 2007, Ken Ham founded the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter in northern Kentucky.
