When a new friend starts spouting beliefs.

My first reaction is to get quiet and hide my point of view. Today, I am starting a new approach: "It's interesting how different people can be. I have no supernatural beliefs at all."

No attack. No argument. Just a verbal shrug.

Most of the time I'll agree with what they say, and join in the fun.. just out of social curiosity

I usually let them know that my first college degree was from a Xian college and I took 5 religion classes while I was there. I have had at least on good blank stare when sharing that.

I like that approach. My experience has been that no matter how ridiculous their arguments are, they will never have an open mind and go with facts instead of fiction. You cannot argue with people that refuse to think for themselves. My best friend is that way. I think of him as my own brother. But when he and his wife start with their religious babbling, I just walk away and he knows not to try to argue with me about it.
