There is no such thing as a "creation date" in unix/linux.
Commonly people misinterpret the "ctime" field as having something to do
with "creation", but actually the C stands for "inode change".
Hence the ctime will be updated if you change the owner of a file, or
make a hard link to the file; anything that changes the information in
the inode.
