Moose Corners - Tuesday
Slept well, no leg cramps. After a big day of tennis, I would sometimes get awful sudden leg cramps in bed. Glad to have nothing of the sort last night.
This morning I'm a bit sore, but much better off than I expected.
I'm sleeping the the small bedroom at the end of the hall because it has a sliding glass door, which I leave wide open all night. It gets nice and cool. I am a mountain air junky. I can see the stars.
The Public Library is closed today, so no blogging or flickr.
Two moose browsed through the yard at about 9 am. Right. Outside. The. Window. They like Aspen leaves.
I noticed that the RM Rep. is off this week; the fall show, The Andrews Brothers, opens on Friday.
I read the Hitchins/Wilson booklet that collects their debate articles as published in Christianity Today. Similar to the audio debate I listened to in the car from the event at Westminster Philly. Hitchens is formidable and wilson is no slouch. Hitchens never really answers Doug's by-what-authority challenge: you say religion is bad for the world - where do you get the standard of good/bad by which you judge and why should such a standard be binding on anyone? Hitch doesn't see the problem with saying that we have just evolved an innate sense of human obligation to one another. He's fine with just leaving it there and just never answers the question: if it is all evolved from time and chance and if it is still changing, what kind of reliable, sensible claim does that impose?
I read Wilson's little Persuasions book. A series of conversations between Evangelist and a variety of modern types he meets on the road. Apologetics and evangelism with shoe leather.
I've also been pushing through Mark's gospel in Greek. I read aloud and can usually tell pretty much what's going on, mostly, sort of, sometimes better than others.
