2. I started out as a strongly convinced YEC'ist (and even Geocentrist for a while), but the evidence is overwhelming.
3. When we make something that is very clearly and unambigiously disproven by the data, a cornerstone of our faith, we have just written Ichabod all over ourselves.
4. The rise of YEC'ism is a modern phenomena - previously I mentioned the nuanced views of the Church Fathers. It will also come as a surprise that many who are very much admired by (conservative?) Christians were not YEC'ist - such as CS Lewis.
I have written a small amount about these matters at my own blog. However, should anybody want to know, I can direct you to a number of blogs that (from a Christian pov) discuss matters relating to YEC'ism and lays bare the shenanigans of many (not all, that's true) that claim to "disprove" evolution in the name of YEC'ism.
You may have any opinion you want about the "expelled" movie but to say it has been "debunked" is simply untrue
