Agreed indeed. It is not important either way. If someone needs to
have this view
to prop us his/her faith then so be it. Why is it necessary to beat
them into the
ground? As paul suggested, we need not offend those of a less strong faith --
especially if the viewpoint is viable.
There is no need for you to agree in order to allow others to retain their
viewpoint. If rigid scientists dropped the "take no prisoners" attitude, then
perhaps hard line YECs would bend also.
