As a geologist, I've had problems in churches I've attended in the past
as well (not here at Calvin). Many in the YEC movement truly believe that
their view is THE Scriptural view and anything else is heresy which needs
to be thrown out of the church. I personally view it as bad science and
bad theology and solved the problem by not attending churches where it's
become a divisive issue.
