I thought the setting was a fascinating concept, but I don't come from a religious background and the crisis of faith thing was something I just don't get. For that reason it just kinda fell flat for me; it didn't seem like there was anything I could take away from the story

Understandably so. The setting is quite neat to me as it sorts out a few of the more tricky questions YEC has to answer but yet manages to still draw out the point that scientific facts are only as good as our interpretation of the evidence can be.

Are there things you do have faith in?

Hmm, like on a spiritual level? Not so much I guess.

I think I'm in the same spot and I'm not sure if I like it.
