  •  When the "faith" is drilled in at a very (7+ / 0-)

    young age, it is very difficult to get rid of it.  The Young Earthers aren't nearly the problem as the folks who've decided that "God's own time" isn't good enough and are trying to bring about Armageddon to force the Second Coming.  Those folks are dangerous (and about half Nixon's staff were of that ilk which tells you how long our Public Policy has been shaped by them).

    You can reach these folks to the extent of changing their behavior and even votes - but not by attacking their faith, even if their faith is nonsense.  Most folks know we've got water problems - too much some places, not enough others - pointing out that fossil fuels and nukes use too much water compared to solar and wind gets their attention without getting their backs up, and even sometimes gets them to vote on our side.
