My concern here is the impact this sort of thing has on the culture in which we live. Science enjoys such prestige nowadays, that most of the public simply, uncritically accepts what scientists say as "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth."
That is my concern also, dearest sister in Christ!
Thank you so much for your wonderful essay-post!

It is because science is of demonstrated usefulness with valuable applicability that science has deserved prestige.
Only those who don't understand science thinks it represents or purports to represent “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth”. Science presents useful models that helps to explain and predict the natural world. The model need not be “true” in order to be of use.
Meanwhile creationism doesn't enjoy the same prestige among the general public or among those hiring people to make valuable and useful predictions or determinations - because it is of no use.
No wonder you are concerned!!!!
