    Nobody knows for sure how old it is, but the majority of the scientific community believes it is approximately 4.6 billion year old.

    If you're not sure then why guess?

    Because it could a percentage either way. Therefore you aren't 'sure' how old it is but you can say it is 4.6 billion years plus or minus X% and be a certain percentage certain that it is within that range (normally 95% or 99% sure).

    I'm 100% sure that the age of the earth is in the order of billions of years. And I'm 100% sure it's not in the order of thousands of years. Science tells me this.
