The second part of the debate that wasn’t a debate, a conversation I had with Makayla, over on Twitter. The first part can be read here and I recommend you read that before reading this part.
In the first part of this conversation, we explored some of the things that I believe in, or rather: disbelieve in. At the end of this part, I asked Makayla the question: “What is that you believe in?” We pick up the debate that wasn’t a debate with her answer to that question.

A while ago, I was contacted via direct message on Twitter by Makayla, a Christian who expressed an interest in my viewpoint on the existence of God and how I came to my position of disbelief. I thought this was rather refreshing, since most of the time, believers tend to give me a hard time about not believing in their particular brand of faith so I decided I would explain as best I could. I also stated that I didn’t want to enter into a debate with her because debates are probably not the best way to go about this sort of thing. So what followed was the debate that wasn’t a debate.
