"I don't need them to drop their faith and come to reason in a grand moment of epiphany."

Yes, reason takes time to chip away. People have invested so much time and energy into the god-business that they just can't bring themselves to ditch faith in one foul swoop. It's too painful, emotionally. What happens, rather, is a gradual flowering to unbelief, through little seeds of reason until one day they wake up and realise it's all a load of make-believe.
