Don't you know many people with religious beliefs that are not creationists, under your definition of creationist?
I think "t.a.r.d." as in The Argument Regarding Design is a good descriptor of creationism, and i agree that you could talk me into accepting that it describes most religious beliefs, but I don't think I could agree that it describes all religious beliefs.
What I have found immensely enjoyable, of late, is that T.A.R.D. also describes the fake climate skeptics. And they behave the same was as the other creationists.
I s'pose the best barometer of "Whether internetting tards causes them to de-tard" would be a metric of how many folks abandon creationisms yet don't abandon their religious beliefs altogether.
It's hard to get data on that one. Easier to find those who have abandoned religious beliefs altogether because they are usually vocal and pissed off about it. Why de-tards aren't is what is curious.
