As an atheist, it sounds to me like you ARE an atheist but can’t admit it to yourself yet. I’ve been there. I’m quite sure all religions are man-made as is Yom Kippur, of course. I go to shul for a short time for social reasons. While there I usually take a couple of minutes to reflect on my life, friends and family, and maybe to think about how I can improve myself and increase my contribution to the world. That’s about it.
Telling someone questioning that they should speak to a Rabbi is an admission that you don’t have the answers. And I have news for you, none of these Rabbis are ever interested in having the discussion with an atheist whose knowledge goes beyond a high school student. I’ve approached quite a few of the most highly recommended kiruv/emunah Rabbis and none of them will talk to me once they see I have some knowledge.
You can’t explain how there can be trees older than the flood and yet go on in blissful ignorance while attempting to put down atheists ? You should ask yourself why you do believe in the face of even a single question about the torah’s divinity which you can’t answer.
