The problem is freaks will believe anything except the stuff with mountains of information and data supporting it.
That's why you have birthers, creationists, 9/11 truthers, and alien abduction people.
It's easier to grab onto something that has some kind of emotional meaning to you as opposed to getting off your ass and actually learning about the universe around you and understand and accepting how small and insignificant you are.
In order to be a creationist you must, by rule, be a liar. That's the only you can be a creationist. First you deny the reality of the situation (ie the Earth is not 6k old) and then you lie to support your pathetic position. That's where psuedoscience like ID comes in.
