I'm asking this question here because it seems like whenever I google tips on talking to believers all the top results are varying religious sites providing tips to persuade atheists to have a "come to Jesus" moment. There was a time when my Catholic mother and I couldn't discuss the differences we had without a knock down drag out fight ensuing in the first 5 minutes. We have been able to make significant progress over the years when it comes to having more calm conversations but there is definitely still some tension, especially when she feels like her religious "evidence" gets steam rolled by scientific evidence. So basically, I am wondering if anyone has succeeded in having these conversations without the big blow ups. I want to keep things civil so we can both benefit rather than closing our minds even more to each other. TELL ME YOUR SECRETS but be nice, my mom means well :)
