Can theists be convinced by reason?

I wouldn't bet on it, but hey, anything is worth a try :D I live in South Africa where there is also a high level of religiosity and general mysticism, so I feel you pain. I personally think that emotion combined with reason is more effective. Religion is evil because it justifies a great deal of suffering, this is relatively easy to demonstrate to people.
