Do you automatically go into debate mode, or do you just let it go?

Do you think everyone should feel a certain way about this?
It depends on who i am talking to usually if i'm talking to someone who is staunch&conservative i usually tend to avoid religious conversations with them as they are never going to let go of their confirmation bias.. but if i'm talking with someone more open-minded&liberal i can talk with them.

Dreams/Hallucinations/delusions are not evidence
Wishful thinking is not evidence
Disproved statements&Illogical conclusions are not evidence
Logical fallacies&Unsubstantiated claims are not evidence
Vague prophecies is not evidence
Data that requires a certain belief is not evidence

No, I'd probably just leave, and that would be the last time I ever hung out with dad when his church friends are around. Save the pissing contests for forums like this - not your real life relationships.

I was 16 and he was my ride home.
Also, I do stay away from that situation now, though at the time I didn't have a choice.

Pretty much, whenever someone says this to me IRL, it is never appropriate to go into debate mode. People seldom proselytize to me and they seldom ask me my beliefs, which is when I would feel it to be more appropriate.
