People often confuse "You're not listening to me" with "You're not agreeing with me". I've got some very hard core Christian family members who tell me that I'm "Just fighting the truth". But this is all a mere projection of them giving up on using their brains. They have admitted to asking questions at one point...but they ultimately had to stop. Critical thinking and skepticism thrives on asking questions, they've stunted their own mental growth.
The problem with Atheism is that it tries to prove there is no God, yet, trying to prove what "does not exist" : is actually affirming it.
Also, Christianity does not require that you turn off your Brain.
But it does require that you understand that things with God are not understood by the "natural mind".
The Natural mind, says.>"seeing is believing".
Christianity, does not enlist the eyes, it requires the Heart....and thats a totally different way to understand, yet, its THE only Way that we discover all that God requires us to Know.......about HIM.
Think of a FM Radio band.
Can you turn on an FM Radio, and find a AM Radio Station?
You cannot, because you are doing the wrong search, and that is what happens when a person, a skeptic, tries to find God by analytical thinking or similar pursuit.
God is not on that Skeptic's AM band.....>He is FM, and they are not Dialed in. God exists is the Spiritual Realm, and you can't find Him or even begin to understand Jesus or The Cross, or Heaven...when you try to diagnose all of this with human reasoning.
You'll never find the SIGNAL that way., Animal2692... you'll only stay disconnected.
