There were multiple testimonials from self-identified YEC lurkers that Hawkins discussions had convinced them that YEC was bullshit.

Arguing the age of the planet with a committed yec is like arguing with the guy in the asylum who thinks he's Napoleon.
There was one young YEC guy at christianforums.com who caved after years of arguing. But he was intelligent. And young.
I remember a couple deconversions at IIDB. Not sure if they were YEC or not.
One was a lady named febble from what I've heard.

I was NEVER a YEC.

Not even close.

if you give it away you'll have so many
they'll be rolling all over the floor

is it deconversion if you were never converted? I don't remember needing convincing, or a 'conversion' experience as a small child. I trusted my parents, and they very simply explained what/who God was, and my belief went on from there. May as well say I was 'converted' to believing whales lived in the ocean, since I believed that for many years before I saw even a photograph of a whale.

I 'lost my faith' around the age of 20, and it never returned.

That's true.  It is a flashbulb memory.  I was half way across the bedroom, having just put down "Freedom Evolves" to go have a pee.

The room kind of reeled.

Hell, I'm not even underwhelmed.
