haha. tbh what percentage of people do you think can be swayed from one side to the other (presupposing everyone starts off on either atheism or theism)

Not mine to judge. I have no idea.

And, as an atheist I don't see it as my job to try to deconvert anyone.

I'm generally live and let live so long as those of whatever belief or lack thereof don't feel the need to push it on everyone else, to harm or hurt others, or to retard science or human knowledge.

Since we all start off atheist, I'd say the percentage is rather high. Unfortunately, religion usually gets it's hooks into them before they learn enough about life to recognize bullshit when they smell it. Even after indoctrination into some religion, people can be de-converted.

I'd hazard to guess that, after learning how to think rationally, more theists are de-converted than atheists are converted but without hard numbers it's just a guess.
