Ted Davis wrote about YEC organizations, in part:

"Those folks believe they're winning the war of ideas,
but (as we all realize) hardly anyone who goes into science in a serious
way
will ever believe their stuff--the exodus out of YEC for scientifically
trained people is much larger than the ingress, and it will always be
so."

Two points.

1. They have already won, in the sense that they are now well established
as a very large cult within Christianity and there is no serious reason
to think they will ever go away.

2. If exodus > ingress, one would expect that at some point the number of
"scientifically trained YECs" will be a null set. Fat chance.
