It's because people either over estimate their ability, or underestimate the work required. Usually both.

yes it also equals out over many people

but always better to be pessimistic

It's also because even if you know exactly what to do.. you do it in the estimated time, but then the customer asks for 3-4 changes afterwards.. so that doubles the time as well. Also bugs.
