Granted - IF our audience is primarily YEC. But in today's world that's
hardly the only group for which an apologetic is needed. & for all the
importance of keeping YECs from apostasizing when they realize the flaws of
that viewpoint (as you have emphasized), there are also multi-millions of
educated non-Christians for whom an apologetic focussed on proving the
historical accuracy of Genesis simply misses the point of their concerns, if
it isn't actually counterproductive.
