Some atheists want to have more "debates", but not me. Life is too short. The religious never get it and I refuse to ruin my pleasant day for somebody's entertainment. Here are ways I *avoid* arguing with the religious. The key is not what I say, but what I hear *them* say.
First off, why are we talking? When the subject comes up, I say I'm an atheist. I say it like I say my favorite color is brown; just a fact. I should be able to state my position on gods without having a big discussion about it. I've only got so many breaths on this planet, and I've stopped wasting them.
