So "arguments" with my mother are always a pleasant exchange of ideas...

I too use your method of religious acknowledgment from time to time (just smile and nod)... but I always know that when debate is said and done, she will continue to think her way and I will continue to think mine. I, like you, never forcefully impose my agnositic/scientific views upon family members, friends, or even anonymous web posters... but I never turn down a good debate!, even if that includes my own Mom... : )

I like to call my "religion" a "religion in the making", because I have two categories of beliefs... my stubborn "you'll never make me think otherwise" beliefs, and my "I'm open to various inputs" beliefs. Science is the foundation of my belief system, but I never turn my back on possibility of there being a "God" (however I don't take much to bible "fariytales").

My condolences go out about your friend Luis...
-Mark
