The church sure fought to perserve the geocentric view of of the universe as a Bible taught theory until it was proven by science beyond a shadow of a doubt that the earth revolves around the sun. I think the same thing will happen today. People will fight tooth and nail to perserve the idea of a literal 6 day creation until they are forced to admit that the universe is, in fact, billions of years old. Willl that cause people to lose their faith? Did people lose their faith when it was proved that the earth revolves around the sun? Or does it just mean that we need not be afraid of the truth, because God is Truth and truth will not contradict faith. Truth makes your position stronger and enhances your faith. Fighting for the anti-intellectual idea that the earth was created in 6 literal days just makes us look foolish in the eyes of the unsaved that we are trying to reach for Jesus. Heliocentrism did not kill Christianity. Neither will evolutionary creationism.
