I have a possible answer.

Creationism is so political compared to other pseudosciences because most creationist are Christians.  According the the New Testament they are commanded by God/Christ to spread the faith and convert the masses.  The other pseudosciences do not have any central leader, human or god-like, or any central text that demands such action from them.  Since conversion is the underlying motive, getting creationism taught in a science classroom as fact would greatly facilitate that goal.

I can state from my own experience as a child (K-6 grade), I believed everything that my teachers told me.  I've grown intellectually beyond that stage but I know adults at my job who still believe in the inerracy of  the authority fiqures.

So what do you thinK?
