Why do christians get so defensive when you question them? Are they really that afraid that they are wrong?

I think that she was just unsure of how to defend her beliefs. She is young, just like you, and will spend the rest of her life seeking the truth, just like you. Go easy on the questions and give her time to explain how she feels about being a Christian and maybe she will understand that you are just seeking knowledge.

Ok, so i know that something like this is probably a normal thread post, but i'd like to throw my two cents in the bucket. Anyway moving along, this post is about religion and all that good stuff. I'm a 10th grader in high school and I am also an atheist. I know what you're thinking, just because I'm 16 does not mean that i am completely ignorant. Now that we've got that out of the way, I have a question, well actually a couple. Why is it almost impossible to have a normal, civilized conversation about religion with a Christian, and i single them out because they are the most hard headed of all religions. The other day i tried this with a girl in my class. I'm not trying to convert anyone I'm merely trying to get my point across, let them see my side of things, i see their side. But the only argument that she could throw at me was "well the bible says....". I was keeping it cool, not raising my voice, etc. After about 5 minutes of this she starts yelling at me. I was just asking her questions. This has happened to me on multiple occasions. So it wasn't just this one person.
The questions that i have are: Why do christians get so defensive when you question them? Are they really that afraid that they are wrong? I know that i might be wrong.
Sorry if i made any grammar mistakes, obviously I'm not a writer. Ha Ha
