No. The Earth is only 6000 years old is actually a CofI invention/discovery* The quote from the catechism clearly references the Creator, but frames it with reference to Science. In other words Science is likely right, so it's more of an intelligent design type thing as far as I can see. Also pretty sure that the "Made in Six days and rested on the Seventh" thingy is viewed as allegory rather than literally.That surprises me as I always thought the RC Church would have a teaching on the age of the earth which it believes that its God created.
