WLC Wins Another Debate

#11serpentslayerPosted 2/3/2013 6:06:49 AM
WLC has said that evidence isn't important to him. He doesn't debate, he orates.

Pretty much. Not to mention Rosenberg was very poor at making his arguments...he was so boring...he stuttered every 5 seconds and went off on random tangents...

As others have mentioned though, it's no different than Romney beating Obama in that first presidential debate though. Debates aren't always about substance.

WLC's arguments are pretty terrible, but he argues them well. Much better than the atheists he goes up against.

Has WLC ever addressed the rebuttals that infidels.org has made to his arguments?

Richard Dawkins also has a decent site: http://old.richarddawkins.net/articles/612104-dealing-with-william-lane-craig

TheoreticalBS, anyone?

The above is both true and false.

I would love to see Dawkins and Craig to head-to-head someday. I gotta admit, as much as Hitchens grates on me, at least he was brave enough to try.

WLC has missed the entire point of Christianity. If his Kalam Argument actually does prove that God exists, then what role is there for faith? Craig's faith is not in God Himself, his faith is in the ability of his own arguments to prove that God is necessary. In other words, he is putting his trust in his own intellect.

To be honest, I would love nothing more than for Dawkins or someone else to prove him completely wrong. It would be a much greater service to his soul than all this intellectual masturbation he's been doing for the last 5 years.
