There is only one way to fight YECism that I think has a prayer of a chance
of working. The entire issue for the YEC concerns the historicity of the
Scripture. They view ASA as people who don't believe the bible and thus as
people who have sold out. The only way that I think has a chance of
working is to provide a framework for science and the bible which retains
the historicity of Scripture and allows the YECs to accept modern science.
Anything or any solution that makes the Scripture non-historical will not
make a dent in the YEC movement. Most people don't see a reason to believe
that mythical, nonhistorical accounts have any claim on their lives.
I do not want to re-open the bible as history discussion again, but merely
to point out that, as a former YEC, the above is my analysis of the
situation. The YECs will reject all science, in order to retain the
historicity of the Scripture.
