I think the exact opposite - people move from religion because they search for truth, maybe questioning their own beliefs and looking in more than one point of view on things. And no, I don't think criticising religions has much to do with "BOOSTING CONFIDENCE". It's just debating; trying to prove your point maybe find others to become interested in, and facing disagreements with a good debate.
Personally, my ego doesn't go up or I don't get a wrenching boner when I prove someone my points. If that's the goal that someone wants to accomplish with debating, I really think they aren't in the style for debating because that's taking in personal needs for the debate itself and when poeple get personal in a debate that can get off topic and bring out more emotions, which leads to a shit debate of everyone pissing on each other.
