i dont think atheist actually argue with christians intentionally. the only time ive seen an argument between the 2 is when side walk christians are screaming "youre going to hell if you dont believe this!" which tends to make the blood of most atheists boil.
Because most of those christains piss us off... Especially by quoting a sentence out of the bible and insisting it proves everything. No. Its a sentence. Out of a book. A sentence. That does not prove anything. A sentence.
are you asking to antagonize them? not very christian like if so. I consider myself christian(not catholic) yet I don't attempt to press my faith on others. Most atheist end up begging to/for god when their time has come.
Christians start fights with atheists all the time- usually by insulting them in the form of suggesting they have no morals or some such.
Also many Christians seem to think that challenging their claims is somehow a fight.
If you are asking why Christians specifically get challenged, it's because most atheists here are American. In America, Christians are the ones constantly trying to convert us and push their beliefs into our laws, schools, and government.
I am a christian Baptist, and i will say that there are athiest who dont, and some christians who actually will start it... To answr ur que, there are several answers, They disagrees with us, think that were foolish for our beliefs Resent us for having something they dont, a loving God....
Not all the time and thats their choice to be one. I stand my ground if they tried to push that mess on me as I know they would if I did the same to them. The only time it aggravates me if they tell me I'm wrong about god. That's when arguments start. This is my belief as they have theirs. Not all atheist are bad.
I feel the same way. Whenever I'm around an atheist & want to stop the discussion, they go on and on and on and on and on.......Christians seem to be a little more passive about debates on the subject & seem to not have to prove anything. We believe by Faith which is the substance of things hoped for & the evidence of things not seen.
because people just HAVE to have their opinion heard by EVERYONE, and if it comes to picking a fight and insulting people who have entirely different beliefs, then that's what they'll do. it's sickening.

From my experiences Christians start non sense and ramble on and on. I would just stay out of religious arguments. Also Aetheists are very scientific and will get into debates but that's who they are. Science <3

Your question itself is picking and trying to start an argument. I'd also like to point out that less than 1/3 of the worldwide population is Christian. That's all. So all of you can stop acting so high and mighty. Yours isn't the only religion.

because Christians and other religious people sometimes shove their views in our face when we dont want it plus its no really us starting the fight its you and questions like these i dont hate on your peoples religion but when you ask for my opinion im going to give it and you dont have to like it but your the one who asked for it
Not really I have a best friend who is an atheist and I'm a Christian and we are close and we don't fight about it... Except he fights other people if that guy tries to cross the line... But I'm the one who stops him... Hmm what an irony :)
If it weren't for christians annoyingly preaching, constantly trying to convert people, shoving their beliefs in everyone's face, telling people that they immoral people that will burn for eternity, and trying to spread false information then I'd say nearly all atheists wouldn't be bothered at all by christians. Usually when anyone (not just atheists) corrects a christian on their mistakes or ignorance then the christian assumes that the other is attacking them even though that is not the case. Your on the christians side, clearly biased, and just seeing atheists as attackers and not christians. I can go on all day about the many unprovoked insults that have been given to me by christians.
What I see, and seems to be the problem here is you are mistaking a discussion for a fight. And I think most christians do as well. When a statement is made not agreeing or showing that the christian is incorrect they most often as one person stated above "defend themselves" but there is no reason to "defend" it's a discussion and all points of view come to the forefront. What you make of it is up to you, the reader.
However, I have never heard an atheist tell a christian that they're gonna suffer forever for their beliefs, but in most discussions the christian will make their last statement that the atheist will roast in hell.
The main goal of those under the influence of the sin nature is to make himself a god, to have complete control over his life, or so he thinks. Then religion comes along with obligations, judgments, and restrictions, while atheists presume to define their own meaning and morality. They do not want to submit to God because their hearts are at "enmity against God," and they have no desire to be subject to His Law. In fact they are incapable of doing so because their sin has blinded them to truth (Romans 8:6-7). This is why atheists spend most of their time complaining and arguing not about the scriptural proof texts, but about the "dos and don't." Their natural rebelliousness detests the commandments of God. They simply hate the idea that anything-or any One-should have control over them. What they do not realize is that Satan himself is controlling them, blinding them, and preparing their souls for hell.http://www.gotquestions.org/evangelize-atheists.html

If atheists stopped answering your questions, perhaps Christians would stop asking the many questions deliberately designed to provoke atheists; purely so the Christians can validate each other. (Don't like this blanket statement? See how this works?) However, I have seen many thought provoking questions come from Christians that aren't designed to incite or inflame. I like discourse without blanket misconceptions about atheism.
No, I've encountered many hot-headed Christians and atheists. It's not just the atheists who start the arguments.
But let's face it - we're insecure beings. We use the internet never to prove that the other person is wrong, but that we're right. We engage in these online debates for either the reason I just stated, or you're actually stupid enough to think that you'll be one of the first people in history to change another person's mind over the internet.
So think about how much good internet debates do, and do your best to avoid them.
I'm an atheist and my best friends, boyfriend, and family are all christians. I am not mean and don't try to cause fights with them. They all respect me and my beliefs so why shouldn't I respect theirs? No all atheists are arrogant you know. We just don't like it when christians try and shove their religon down our throats or hate us just for what we don't believe in.
I don't really know it from an atheists point of view but being a Christian myself I would say that its half and half. Sometimes its the atheists that start it, sometimes its the Christian's. We shouldn't really judge atheist's for their beliefs...or lack there of, because hey, we believe in God, they have just as much of a right to speak out what they believe (or lack there of haha) just as much as we do. It's our job to reply with kindness, and not try to raise anger. And for all those Christian's out there, who get angry with the atheists, remember, In your anger, do not sin.
Actually, I find that Christians start the majority of the debates and/or arguments. The moment I mention I'm atheist, I get threats of Hellfire and Brimstone. Really, most atheist would like to live in peace with theists, but that's kind-of hard when you get threatened, ridiculed, and stereotyped constantly. You know, it's kind of strange. I've met a Muslim, and she was a lot kinder in regards toward my beliefs than some Christians I've met, if not most of them.
