John Calvin, a Young-Earth Guy

“…the duration of the world, now declining to its ultimate end, has not yet attained six thousand years.” John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, I. XIV. 1.

“Now, in the first place, if men wish to cling to their knowledge and judgment, it will be incredible to them that the world was created six thousand years ago. For what was God doing from all eternity?” John Calvin, Sermons on Genesis: Chapters 1-11, p. 8.
