Well, first, if the creation time is newer that the time on the machine, one
of the two times is wrong, so fix your system time.

Second, to verify that everything is as it should be, you could provide us
with the output of
gpg --batch --status-fd=2 --import your_bogus_key

or give me a key with creation time a couple of weeks into the future.
Also, what does "doesn't work" mean?  Do you get an error value, and if yes,
which one?
