Gap Creationist

One of the better-known accommodations of religion to science was Gap or Restitution Creationism, which claimed that there was a large temporal gap between Genesis chapter I:1 and chapter I:2 (Young, 1982). Articulated from about the late 18th century on, Gap Creationism assumes a pre-Adamic creation that was destroyed before Genesis I:2, when God recreated the world in six days, and created Adam and Eve. A time gap between two separate creations allows for an accommodation of the proof of the ancient age of the earth with Special Creationism.

Gap Creationism is awfully hard to differentiate from Day-Age. If you're more comfortable calling yourself a Day-Age Creationist, by all means, go ahead.
