    I'm fine with either of them as long as the other isn't being a dick about it by ignoring my points and making things up to sustain his arguments...
    Ditto. In fact, these types of discussions have strengthened my friendships with some of my friends. Though, I do tend to agitate and argue more with people more when discussing religion rather than politics.

    Something like this surely only can come from you Kolox-kun...

    Are these two topics that sensitive topics to talk about? I don't have any problem with Religion (....oh okay, I'm atheist as well..)...and I might have problems with politics but only simply because I don't know that much about that...

    Politics are Politics - either your interested and talk about it, or not. As far as I am concerned, I am not that interested in USA politics, hence I don't post there - and there was more than few topics about it.

    I love to argue too much, I remembered that time me and comp were talking with a young earth creationist arguing about "flood geology" and the size/age of the sun.

    +1 vote for "neither". I've had discussions about both before and still become friends with those people, why can't you talk about those issues without keeping it civil? I agree with Shautieh, it's ok as long as neither of the people involved are being assholes about it.

    +1 for none again.
    I've had friendships that started with heated discussions about politics. As for discussing it with friends I already have, some of the people I meet would be damn boring if we couldn't argue about each others political views.
    Religion I just have tons of fun questioning. I have nothing against people who belive, and being agnostic as I am I'll tell them that I'll agree on God existing the day he slaps me in the face, but not say any prayers too them.

    But yea, I would drop a friend if he/she was unable to talk about politics or religion. Not worth spending my time with someone who can't defend what they stand for.

    It depends whom am I dealing with; I do not really like to enter into debates with close-minded people, since that is a waste of time. On the other hand, if the people in question are open-minded then I think I can discuss about anything. What I love about debates is that more than reviewing my own points, and why I have them, in order to elaborate decent rebuttals, I have to do some research, and I learn one or two things by doing so. Moreover, the most important thing is that I get to know the viewpoint of other people, which may be correct, whilst mine may be wrong. Also, if that person is serious about his/her rebuttals, that'll grant me even more info than the one I acquired while elaborating my own reply.

    Anyway, unlike אֶהְיֶה or Saizou who seem to be up to it almost at any time, I usually am not in the mood to get into debates. As an example, I hadn't had a debate for almost an entire year until the "Chile and Economics" one I had with Saizou, or the "Birth Control" one in which I was involved quite recently. However, I do read most of the debates I consider to be good (they usually involve, adonai, Jakko, or Saizou).

    I don't care which to discuss. But I do find people to be more sensitive, talking about their religion then their attitude regarding politics. So, I voted religion to be the most taboo.
