I was quite happy as a kid with my creationism and my Christianity. I had no reason to abandon either, and plenty of reasons not to. Logic and evidence made the difference.
Don't forget what a cocoon many young evangelicals live in. The Internet is often the first place they encounter reasonable, intelligent people who don't believe the horseshit. I think it's a very good thing that when they go to UD or similar places, they see that it's the godless evilutionists who are making the intelligent, sensible arguments.
