← Can theists be convinced by reason?

Most American atheists are former theists whom arguments convinced. I don't know whether such a majority effect occurs in other nations such as my own, but it needn't for my point. Literally millions of theists have been convinced of atheism, and millions more to modify their own theism (e.g. by abandoning creationism or at least young earth creationism), in the US alone. This implies a fairly affirmative answer to the question. This website's "Converts' Corner" documents examples in people's own words.
