Daniel, the answer is entirely too simple: the biblical view is EASIER. Stupider, for sure, but easier. It doesn't require any understanding or, more importantly, any scientific education. All it needs is BELIEF.
And for the umpti-umpth time: belief is easy. KNOWING ... that's hard.
For the umpti-umpth+1 time, Loren, believers say they know so knowing has to be easy.
It's thinking that they avoid.
Thanks for the Biblical Cosmology image.
