Hey guys. I’m sitting here in Santa Cruz getting ready to go debate Peter Payne on whether or not ethics requires a foundation in god. As always I’m putzing with my opening even up to the debate. Here’s a bit I added that made me smile:
It makes absolutely no sense to call a god who conceived of cancer and which commanded genocides “benevolent”, even if it is asserted that such a god also told us not to steal. If you redefine “benevolent” to include such a god, you have made the word all but meaningless.
And I want to spend some time reading and writing and my usual pace. May will be the time for that. Wish me luck!
