Why Creationists Lie

I saw an Australian guy do a creationist lecture debunking evolution as part of the documentary Friend of God. Every single thing he said was untrue, or a straw man argument.

For example, he falsely claimed that evolutionists say that one’s literal grandparents were monkeys. He showed a slide of hairy faced grandparents to illustrate how this assertion was ludicrous. He falsely claimed evolutionists believed that dinosaurs and man roamed the earth at the same time. He showed a slide of a dinosaur pulling cart to mock this straw man assertion.

He clearly had no legitimate arguments at all for creationism or against evolution. In other words, he knew he was lying. He knew he was pulling a con. But why? Hint: churches rake in over $71 billion each year.
