Because you used 2012-09-07T17:10:17+00:00 instead of 2012-09-07 somewhere in the .opf file.

How is the content.opf file populated? I didn't enter any info into the field in question. Can I change the flow of information into this field during the conversion process? I am like a kindergartener trying to build a refrigerator

i've used +00:00:00Z to indicate time zone in epub2 if necessary. so it would look like

<dc:date>2012-00-00T00:00:00+00:00Z</dc:date>

maybe ZULU is necessary for it to validate?

The error message is being displayed because the publisher is using epubcheck 1.x. To fix this issue:

a)

- rename the .epub file to .zip
- open the archive
- locate the .opf file
- copy it to a different folder
- find the line with the date in it
- change it to 2012-09-07
- replace the .opf file with the updated version
- rename .zip file back to .epub

b)

- open the .epub with Sigil
- Prese F8 and add/modify the creation date
- save the .epub
