You think atheists are more rational?
I think atheists are making irrational choices:
Atheists choose to believe life sprung out of nothing. We can’t even create life in science lab from nothing.
Atheists choose to believe the perfect temperature, the balance of seasons, and the gravitational pull of this earth are all coincidence.
When hearing of people telling of meeting others in heaven briefly in a near-death experience, atheists choose to believe all those people are lying in a similar manner even children.
Atheists have heard Christians say “we are all sinners who need a Savior from our sins.” Then when they see a Christian fall and sin, they say “I will not become a hypocrite like those Christians who sin.” Your question says atheists are rational, but here, they forget the definition of all. We are all sinners.
I find it irrational that atheists can believe history while reading a history book (granted, they likely have an open mind while reading this), yet, they don’t spend time reading the Gospel (and would likely approach them with a closed mind). Shouldn’t a rational person accept accounts of Genghis Khan and Jesus with similar respect for historical records?
