As some parts of the world welcome 2014 and others anticipate the celebration, there are some confused Twitter users out there who think the earth (or America) is 2014 years old. Here is a selection of tweets from these people:

And then there were others who wanted to show their sense of humor:

Happy 2014th Birthday to the US tonight. Thank Washington for your parties. I remember when Jesus and him shared the first Thanksgiving.

While there is no exact date of the age of the world, scientists estimate that Earth is 4.54 billion years old. That’s quite a few more years than 2,014.
