Atheism, Agnostics and annoyances

It occurred to me while listening to a podcast that my primary frustration with agnostics and atheists is the conflation of either a lack of thinking or a lack of imagination with “Reason”.  I am an adherent to the Hoffer/Haidt notion that religion is (in part) a sense, that people have to varying degrees.  I lack a sense for sushi, as well as jazz – such spectrum quirks should not be equated with logic, reason and thought.
