Okay, so it is this simple. Spanish politicians can choose what to swear on, either their Constitution or the Bible... In the U.S. el Presidente swears on the Bible only... or "the Book" really.
Then it all made sense to me.
For those who don't know, the U.S. is VERY religious. Does the term Bible Belt have any significance? Its the red part in the map above.
Big Bang is fundamentalist creationism. This is why they are totally cool with it taking about a week or so...Just like in Genesis.
There is no WAY in hell we will ever get rid of it as a "scientific theory". It would be as difficult as getting rid of Christianity or Judaism or Islam. So essentially it has to be said. The real atheists of the world reject creationism, a.k.a. Big Bang.
