Default Why do Athiests feel they have to be so outspoken?

Whether it's on here or in school or anywhere, whenever I'm with an Atheist person and we start to talk about something deep (it doesnt even have to be religious) they feel they have to say something about Atheism. Sure, you're an Athiest, good for you, but why the fuck do you have to try to prove to me that God doesn't exist? You're NEVER going to change my mind.

If you say "well it's because your priests and pope try to change ours", then take it to the fucking pope. I have (nor any of my friends) never ever tried to convert somebody to Christianity, yet Atheists act like it's their duty to convert all Christians to Atheism.

Yeah, evolution exists. Yeah, the Earth is 4 billion years old. I'm not denying any of this shit, I just want to know why Atheists seem to be so incredibly outspoken.

Is it because they want to be unique and they think it makes them cool? I don't know, fill me in.

Not all (maybe even most) atheists are that way and i think it's over-generalization to say so (not saying you are). But i do find it interesting how much sweat they'll break just to prove that God doesn't exist.... interesting.

That was certainly an overgeneralization though.

Therefore this discussion doesn't really get anywhere.

I could say the same for the theists I have encountered.

Maybe some share a passion for explaining something would be my best guess.

People are out spoken.

People like attention.

Doesn't matter if you are an outspoken atheist or religious person. Everyone likes attention.

Because nonreligion is "fresher" than religion and so we haven't gotten it out of our system yet.

There aren't religious people that are outspoken?

And because some religious people say that because I am not Christian I am going to hell?

That's why.

Christianity compels believers to share the gospel. There are not as many atheists attempting to get their message across as their are Christians forcing their beliefs on others.
Thank you.

Why is it that you alienate atheists in this thread?
