This is why people get upset when their beliefs are challenged. In short cognitive dissonance is when a mental conflict occurs when beliefs are challenged by new information. The conflict activates areas in the brain involved in personal identity and emotional response to threats. The brain's alarms go off when a person feels threatened on a deeply personal and emotional level causing them to shut down and disregard any rational evidence that contradicts what they previously regarded as "truth".
If atheism is based on science, then put evolution to the scientific process. It wouldn't pass because no part of evolution has been able to be replicated or observed. Atheism thus takes much more faith than most religions. Christianity is based on the word of God, who was there when the world began and has given testament of it. Science points to the Biblical account as being true.
:D It's ridiculous when believers say they "can feel his presence" or "faith makes me happy and fulfilled". What's even more ridiculous is when they claim there's a "lack of evidence" for evolution. They can't comprehend the abundant evidence there is but are willing to lie to themselves when it suits them.
