Denying Arguments

I have seen sure-fire arguments for the non-existence of gods fail when presented to Christians. I have seen them repeatedly close their eyes when presented with errors and blatant inconsistencies in the bible asserting they cannot possibly be there. Even when they have no rebuttal, they wriggle out saying, something like There must be an explanation. How could you expect a humble servant of god like me to know it. or That sounds convincing, but probably I am too stupid to understand such mysteries. You should talk to my pastor.. What alternate sorts of arguments might work?

Perhaps the key is understanding why they are so addicted to Christianity despite all reason:
