The overwhelming evidence makes it difficult to have enough ‘faith’ to be an atheist.
The book entitled I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist and the subheading are expressions of the idea that it takes a certain level of ‘faith’ in atheism to deny all the evidence of the existence of God. Consider this idea in terms of this aphorism attributed to Albert Einstein:

One can try to believe that ‘nothing is a miracle’ but this would take a tremendous amount of denial. There is either overwhelming evidence of the existence of God or there is not. Take into account just a couple of examples of miracles or evidence that the astronomical odds that it’s all a ‘cosmic accident’.
Miraculous recoveries such as the one in the story reported here by Lorie Wimble: Doctors baffled as inoperable brain tumor in 11-year-old Roxli Doss miraculously disappears.
Or this story of an confession of a horrific crime that ended in a miraculous occurrence as reported in the Daily Wire: Baby Girl Miraculously Survives Being Left In Icy Pond After Father Tells Cops He Drowned Her “There was absolutely someone watching over that child today.”
Cosmic accident or not? Consider the odds:
Brian Keating, Professor of Physics at the University of California, San Diego also discussed this point in a later PragerU video:
Given what we know, it is far easier to be a believer than trying to deny the evidence. That is the most important point to remember this Christmas.
