Has a religious acquaintance ever told you that you are "over-thinking" religion?  It certainly has been said to many non-believers.  This objection is akin to the arguments religious apologists sometimes make regarding the flaws inherent in reason and evidence:  It is an admission that their beliefs don't really make sense.  Here are some suggested replies:

"Shouldn't a person think long and hard about important questions such as his belief system?"


"It's better to over-think important matters than to under-think them."

Or, if you want to be a little more aggressive, you can say:

"It's better to over-think than not to think at all."
