I think a point is being lost here

Namely that the truthfulness of a particular Creation myth has no bearing on whether or not it is Science.

Science is a search for explanations and all Creation myths are based on miracles.

Miracles represent the absence of explanation, they are by definition supernatural, whereas Science consists of discovering the Laws of Nature.

Newton's Theory of Gravity was Science in every sense of the word (and was even very useful in understanding and predicting Nature), yet it is now provably false.

Creationism in all it's forms, by contrast, can never be Science because it relies on miracles. Once we invite miracles into our logic, the journey of understanding we call Science is over, because the Laws of Nature cease to be relevant (or even laws).
