That's a damn good question. Also, why is it so important to some that the earth is only 6 thousand yrs old?
I suppose the answer to both questions is that it's in the Bible. And people go crazy on the Bible. Even Isaac Newton went crazy on the Bible.
That's because they consider the Bible The Word of God. They have no real footing for believing that. There's no actual evidence that the Bible is the word of God. They just believe it out of thin air.
And that's why they go Bible crazy, and the creation is so important. And why we have "The Creation Museum" here in Kentucky. Where they have exhibits of people riding dinosaurs ... like in the Fred Flintstone cartoon. They take the Fred Flintstone cartoon literally ... like they do the Bible also. They've gone Bible crazy. Like the Flat Earth Society ...
