A bit from my debate opening tonight.

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.

I’m so tired.  Two straight months on the road is more tiring than I ever would have imagined.  Tomorrow I leave at 4:15am PST and arrive home at 11:38pm EST.  I’ll finally get some rest.  Don’t get me wrong: I love doing what I do and I wouldn’t trade it for the world…but I just want to sleep in my own bed.

And I want to spend some time reading and writing and my usual pace.  May will be the time for that.  :)  Wish me luck!
