A lot of Christians will tell you that if you don't choose god, you reject god. However, is that really the case or is that just a false dichotomy set up by the church? Let's look deeper into this assumption, this dichotomy that the entire faith rests on. Is it really the case that I can only choose god or reject god, or is it possible there are other solutions or reasons for not choosing while not rejecting? To examine this deeper I am going to set up a helpful analogy.
Let's say you are in the market for a new car, you have recently wrecked yours in a terrible accident. During your search you come across a man who claims he has the perfect car for you. Interested, you listen. However, as the man begins describing the car, it's too good to be true. The car is exactly what you wanted, no, what you needed and the price is perfect! But as the man continues, his claims become more extravagant, more outrageous. Your elation slowly gives way to doubt, and finally outright disdain. The man sees the doubt in your eyes, but instead of just showing you the car and removing all doubt, he heaps on more outlandish features the car has!
Now at this point you're beginning to think this is a scam, he's just trying to get your money, he's feeding off of your recent loss and trying to take advantage of it. Angry, you dismiss the man and his made up car. Have you rejected the mans car? No, not at all. In fact, you don't believe his car exists, or perhaps you believe he has a car but that the man is inaccurately describing it to you. All he would have to do is show you the car and you would gladly accept it!
You see, there is no dichotomy here. I do not reject the god of the bible, I simply don't believe he exists. You cannot reject something you don't believe to be an actual thing. I don't reject unicorns, I simply don't believe they exist. Any truly omniscient being would immediately recognize this flaw. Why would a perfect god, a perfect being, create such a terribly (and obviously) flawed doctrine? It makes absolutely no logical sense.
In order for one to truly choose, one must clearly understand the choices. If it is possible for me to doubt that one of the choices is even a real choice, how can I be expected to make an accurate judgement, and therefore an accurate choice? I can't, and there is no dichotomy only an illusory perception of one put forth by the church and perpetuated by the zealots.
I encourage you to open your minds, think outside of the box (and the book). Incorporate reason and empirical evidence into your decisions and beliefs. I leave you with words from the Dalai Lama:
"To deny the authority of empirical evidence is to disqualify oneself as someone worthy of critical engagement in a dialogue."
