Yes, maybe. I have a Computer Science degree from an earlier life, but hated programming and went back to school for a different degree. I was not bothered at all by evolution or Darwin the first time through. It was in geology I had my first real encounter with millions/billions of years. And they convinced me: the Bible must be wrong according to science.
Charles Lyell wanted to discredit Moses and remove his influence from society. Darwin and David Hume (the first Humanist) wanted similar things. Millions/billions of years was the cement that eventually bound Darwinism/evolutionism to a seeming factual reality for atheists/humanists/naturalists. You can now see the results of several generations of kids trained by our atheist/humanist school curriculum, by indoctrination rather than education, that science disproves God. You see they are spoon fed inference and speculation as though it were fact and without context. Here is one example from a text book I looked over awhile back.
Text book asserts "By far DNA is the strongest evidence for evolution - which DNA scientists have been able to build a complete phylogenetic tree that is completely in agreement with the fossil record and other evidence."
What the text book leaves out is of 1,5 million species known to be alive on the planet we have actually mapped about 13,000 genomes (less than 1%) to build that tree. One percent! Right, that must be a pretty bare tree! But the students don't get this information and they walk around thinking that all the species have been mapped and a clear picture of phylogenetic relationships can be made and genetics and the fossil record confirm evolution; hogwash.
Because church leaders don't know how to deal with millions of years and evolutionary issues, they teach topics that mostly relate just to spiritual things. No wonder the world thinks the creation/evolution battle is the "Bible (or religion) vs. science," when it is really the Bible vs. naturalism.
Churches have not dealt with areas like geology, biology, anthropology and so on. For instance, though the pastors and their congregations basically believe Genesis to be true, the Genesis accounts are presented as just "stories" that are not related at all to fossils, the age of the earth, dinosaurs, etc.
Millions/billions of years and the Bible cannot co-exist, one is in error. Kids will take the word of their teacher. Besides preachers know nothing about science or how to refute it, even if they could fathom the evidence.
The more one is educated, the more one is full of OPINIONS from teachers and "knows" that science disproves God, before any possibility of confirming anything. We don't even recognize we abandon scientific method for OPINION.
We should instead be looking at the interpretation of the evidence, and how the same evidence could be interpreted within a biblical framework and confirmed by testable and repeatable science.
The facts of the real world really do conform to, and confirm, the Bible.
Willful ignorance is just a decision in bad faith to avoid becoming informed about something so as to avoid having to make undesirable decisions that such information might prompt.
