|I would suggest that... the common factor among de-tards is that they were suspicious of the tard in the first place.|
I don't think so. In my case, for example, I assumed that the tard was true, because my parents, my pastor, and many people I respected told me it was true.
It wasn't until I started learning science that I realized, to my discomfort and distress, that there was a conflict between science and my religion. And my initial response was not to become suspicious of the tard. I doubled down on the tard and became suspicious of the science!
Interesting - did you take your convictions online? (I'm not looking for links!).
BTW My vote, should anyone care, for pending de-tard is Sal Cordova. The rest? Nevah!
