I don't expect many to de-tard. Especially, if they are beyond a certain age. TARD belongs to a person's religious beliefs and feelings which are both part of the personality which develops latest in early adult years. To change this usually requires some incident in personal l life. Just reading science will not suffice. I guess it is much easier to go in the other direction and usually contains some delusional Damascus road experience. In addition, Christians are prepared to welcome seekers.  E.g., GilDodgen. However, for the time being going TARD in adulthood seems to be some US specialty.  Maybe it is due to the 30 year war which ended with the “cuius regio, eius religio” rule but where I live people would be embarrassed by publicly outing themselves as born again Christians especially, when crying and whining is involved. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that the public is scientifically more literate. TARD just comes as eso-, new age, scifi TARD. However, these forms are much less virulent than the Only One Truth TARD© because these guys just don’t care about science and aren’t interested in the science curriculum at all.

i don't have any robust comparative methods for comparing the other species of tard so i just ignored the woo.  but if woo overlaps with tard, and "de-tarding" is the intellectuall exercise that would encourage "de-woo" then there may be an even stronger case that internetting the tard doesn't cause de-tard but may cause trophic shifts from tard to woo LOL
