Creationists' age for the earth

Bishop Usher, if I remember from school, pinned the moment of 
Universal creation down to 9:15 am on the 8th of October 4004 B.C. so 
it'll soon be the anniversary. If only it were true then I could 
hypothesise the rates of divergence of the organisms I'm studying and 
come back two weeks later to see if I'm right. Thankfully schools here 
in Britain have a more pragmatic approach to the study of science.
