I would also like to add the following.
Some creationists think evolutionists also use the childish "what-if" as evidence.
In science, a hypothesis is made and tangible evidence will either confirm or disprove it. But creationists think like children. They come up with what-if scenarios and then try to use them as evidence. The most obvious examples are all the myriad of what-if "evidence" they come up with to try to prove noah's flood. Everything from insects surviving on floating mats of vegetation to the hydro-plate theory is used to prove the flood even though they're all what-ifs. Creationists don't understand that using a what-if scenario ain't evidence.

Actually, this has been explained to me before by asian friends. The saying used to be "May the Emperor live for ten thousand years." The "may god preserve our land for ten thousand years" is just a modified version of this very ancient traditional saying. It's like "god save the queen". In other words, it's not really religious. Just a traditional line or greeting that everybody in the culture uses.
