  • Because both are attempting to inform folks of the Truth. Would you rather live a lie?
  • How do you mean competing? If you mean the atheists pointing out the fallacies of the fundamentalist superstitions, there is no competition.
  • Definitely it does
  • Most atheists don't compete with most christians. But when's the last time an atheist came to your door and tried to convert you? As an atheist I can tell you, when provoked I will defend myself.
  • Where did you get the idea that (Some) atheists and (Some) christians are competing with each other? In my experience (Some) Christians are trying to shove their crap down (Some) Atheists' throats and convert them whether (Some) Atheists like it or not
  • Childish Yes, but its a free internet
  • It is childish, Zenrean. But, as a curious side note, I don't notice many atheists confronting Muslims, Zoroastrians, or Buddhists. Why not? "Oh, they are not trying to "force their religion on me!" Look again, non-believer. Do you know nothing of the Islamic movement, worldwide? After all that has happened in the last few decades, do you really think Christians are your "enemy"?! (lol)
  • I dont know. It gets on my nerves. I dont like being rediculed by atheist. I dont try to force anything on them.
  • Competing for what?
  • I never noticed and quite frankly could give a shit unless someone got in my face, and that would be a grave mistake on their part! To each his/her own and I respect everyone's beliefs as long as Children and women are not being abused. +5 Zenrean. Hey Kid, go back to your last Avatar, this one is not Cool enough for you. Peace, Jonathan
  • (squinting to see if I read the question right)...OOOOoooooooooooooooooooooo.....I'm telling..:+
  • NO!!! PEOPLE WHO CALL OTHERS CHILDISH ARE CHILDISH!!! Oops. :)
    • Linda Joy
      lol
  • If you mean arguing, it is done for pride. Not all Christians are humble, so pride is often considered a negative force in human existence as the opposite of humility.
  • All depends on the intent of the person, and style of delivery.
  • I don't think they are "competing". I think they are debating the validity of their beliefs.
  • I don't know about atheists, but as a reader of the Bible and a Christian who tries to follow the teachings of Jesus, who said in Matthew 28:19 ,20 "Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you." (NWT) When Jesus was on the earth, he gave his followers a commission, he told them to preach the good news of the Kingdom, and he showed them how to go about it. (Matt. 10:7; Luke 8:1) Among other things, Jesus prepared his disciples for both a negative and a positive response to the Kingdom message. (Luke 9:2-5) He also foretold the extent of their preaching activity, telling them that his followers would give “a witness to all the nations.” (Matt. 24:14; Acts 1:8) Regardless of how people responded to the preaching, the disciples were to tell people about God’s Kingdom and what it would accomplish. A Christian is by definition, a follower of Christ, as such we have the responsibility to tell others about Gods Kingdom and how and what Jesus will do for mankind as the King of that Kingdom.

  • I am a firm and proud atheist unaffected by religious delusions and I am not in competition with anyone. I do not get involved with people in general because I do not want to be hurt and that there is corruption in people which I avoid as much as I can. It is childish to be in competition with others.
