Helpful thoughts here from Rick Phillips. I found his third point to be quite instructive. There is certainly an impulse in me to not look like one of the "fringe weirdos". "Please accept me!" as a guiding emotional compass will eventually lead one down a path that leads to great despair.
There certainly is a place for a worthy critique of Ken Ham and his ministry, but at the end of the day whether you are a literal 6 day, 24 hour believer or not, all Christians are going to have to come to terms with the fact that many will write us off as wackos, unworthy of the simplest respect, unless we adhere to the reigning cultural narrative of blind, cold materialism. To the incoherence of this position may we never bend the knee. There are worse things than cultural ostracism.
