Oy, it’s an evening for a debate with a creationist. Hey, Matt Dillahunty, would you like to jump on a plane and zip up here to Fargo, North Dakota to take over for me? You’re so much better than I am at this stuff.
Probably not. I just have to brace myself up, I guess. Anyway, it’s going to be packed with Christians — I think the 7th Day Adventists are sponsoring this thing — so any friendly godless faces in the audience will be appreciated. It’s at 7pm, in the Ramada Inn (1635 42nd St S), and the topic is “Is there evidence for a creator or not?”. I’m “not.”
I’ve got an opening statement prepared, but otherwise, the thing about these events is that I just have to wing the rest. I’ll post my opener tomorrow and let y’all know how it turned out — I’m kind of suspecting that my planned intro of howling “RENOUNCE YOUR FALSE GODS!” and flinging lightning bolts from my fingertips might not go over real well.
Just to add to all the fun, it’s going to be a very busy weekend, as I’m flying off to Los Angeles on Saturday, and on Sunday, my planned intro for that talk is to howl “RENOUNCE YOUR FAITH IN OMNIPOTENT ADAPTATIONISM!” and turn random members of the audience into amphibians.
There’s a chance of crucifixion. That always spices up a weekend.
