I suspect you're wasting your time on this one. Teh Stupid is powerful in him"
I wrote what I wrote, because theists have a rational reason for trusting in logic and reason, and consistent atheists don't.
The vast majority of atheists are inconsistent. Atheism may work in theory, but it is unworkable in practice. Once it has served its purpose of freeing humans from accountability to a higher moral agent, it's pretty much downhill from there.
What atheist ever held a newborn child in his arms and said to him, "I have feelings of love for you, but these feelings are nothing more than chemical reactions caused by a cruel trick of unthinking, unfeeling, uncaring evolution. And, though my heart may swell with pride and I may wish big things for you, in fact, because you exist in an uncreated universe, you are entirely without ultimate worth or value or purpose or destiny. And, although I value and prize you highly, this is because of a quirk of impersonal evolutionary forces that make me feel this way. In fact, you are no more worth or consequence than a sack of potatoes or a bag of rocks, and, if someone were to bash your head in, that would be of no more consequence in this materialistic, unplanned, undesigned universe, than someone smashing a bag of potatoes or crushing bunch of rocks -- have a nice life".
As I said, it may work in theory, but it is utterly unworkable in practice. I suspect that most atheists have not thought deeply about the logical implications of their belief.
Atheism at its core has a void and a blackness to it that is matched only by their worship of the Void as the "first cause" of both the material universe and of life:
the anthropic "principle" - from a principleless void
the exquisite laws of physics - but no law-giver
logic - from nothing
rational thought - from nothing
consciousness - from unconscious nothing
love - from nothing
beauty -from nothing
life - from non-life
the material universe - from nothing
An atheist's motto might be "from the Void to the Void, with glorious, unexplainable life in between".
The Christian chooses to believe the more reasonable, more probable, and more satisfying answer.
And, in the gospel of Jesus Christ, has a hope of eternal life spent with God that is simply "too good not to be true".
But that's another post for another day. Time to get the 'burgers and 'dogs on the BBQ.
