Atheists and evangelical Christians share a common trait; bigstock-Dictionary-Series-Religion-moral-3602749.jpgboth groups are always fighting for the highest conversion rate. In general, they both espouse their superior qualities whenever religion is tangentially mentioned in casual conversation, they both plaster buses and billboards with messages about their cause, and they both look down on those who don't share their beliefs.*

So today's open thread question is this: Which group annoys you the most with the constant bombardment with their views on God? Which one do you think has the highest conversion rate thanks to their non-stop evangelizing?

*Obviously this doesn't describe every single atheist or evangelical Christian. It's a generalization of the groups' stereotypical proselytizing.
