Quote from: Absurd Atheist on May 23, 2017, 04:39:08 PMYou now that point, that moment where your having casual discussion about life and eventually some talk of religion, faith and spirituality comes up. Someone suggests God might not exist or someone blips out that homosexuality is a sin and expects everyone to nod along. This moment underlies many conversations, dozens before they even began as you know it's possible that the moment may occur if you decide to talk to this person. Everyone denies the moment will happen and that their open-minded, but as soon as the wrong sentence is said or the idea entertained, the conversation either dies immediately or things get a lot worse.Any tips on how to circumvent or navigate these moments of discussion so that you can have friends who don't have to believe exactly what you do? I mean you can just ignore the topic or never reach this point, but that doesn't always work as sometimes someone's just roaring to convert you, or for example it's a group thing and your not just going to walk out of the hotel room to wander the halls at 4 in the morning.Any of you have these experiences?Edit: Sorry this is in the wrong section, how do you move it?
