I would not claim to have 'converted' a faith head but I have been approached by a few people who had questions and clearly already had already expressed doubts. I would claim to have been in a position to answer their questions and lend them 'The God Delusion'. In the hands of a 'wobbler' the God Delusion is a very powerful book.

I would claim however to have been the final straw for a young earth creationist, I'm not exactly sure what he now is (some kind of more average christian) but he did buy a telescope, a few books on the cosmos and a book on evolution.

I would however claim to have converted a number of alternative medicine believers, to accepting that it only works because of the placebo effect.
