The origin of the Young Earth Creationists

So I’m reading Chris Impey’s book “The Living Cosmos” when I run across his mention of the origin of the young earth crowd.

It happened in 1654, James Ussher said that the genesis of Earth occured at 9:00AM on October 23, 4004BCE. And of course this was refuted by James Hutton in his “Theory of Earth”. But lot of good that did us. We still have morons around who believe that a 354 year old fiction is reality.

Just thought you’d like to know where it came from.
