7. If they ask about my beliefs, I tell them.

But I never ever attempt to convert people who are clearly imbedded with their own beliefs.

If they make scientific claims that I know to be falsified, I will challenge them on it. When they tread on my turf, I reserve that right. I do remain polite, however.

If somebody rings my doorbell and wants to talk to me about Jesus, or the Book of Mormon, of has a Watch Tower in hand, I am always very polite. I rarely engage them but always smile and wish them a pleasant day as they depart. I see no reason to be rude, although if they wake me up on Sunday morning I may be... ahem... brief with them.

In short, polite and respectful conversation is always preferable to chair throwing and defenestrations.
