Maybe because they are asking for the other person to convince them of what they believe in. Arguing against the other person's points can help one better understand what makes people believe things that you don't believe and can possibly make you believe it too.

The same reason why you argue about atheism even though, not only do you not believe in that philosophy, but also you are completely void of any knowledge on the subject and necessity of atheism! The moment you will learn to "keep thy religion to thyself", those people, who you assume to argue, would "keep their unbelief to themselves". The moment you will stop praying in their schools and public places, they too will stop thinking in your brain!!
Well constantly confronted by problems that arise from this thing some people don't believe in, it becomes imperative that these people make cogent argument against the spread of bad ideas. I wonder why anyone would make an argument for something vastly superior at speaking for itself. It's funny how the squirrel fights a battle for a tank- so impudent and presumptuous. I suppose if we had to pin down just why it's because courting death from things we don't believe in is human nature- it is comical after all.

For the same reason you do, Deb. However, many of us prefer to debate, but others on both sides of the issue would rather just rant and argue. But that's the choice everyone makes. Those who are informed, debate. Those who aren't, argue.
First off, I love debate so even if I did believe in your god I would still argue with it. Second, I don't argue against what I don't believe in. I argue against false information. I can't tell you how many times you've made the statement that the Bible is all true and sorts of incorrect misconceptions against other religion. Of course, I did not argue against what I did not believe in, but I argued against your false information. I think we all need to be challenged, especially if one's ideas are full of misconceptions.
