Craig couldn't handle a guy outside of forum that encourages his gallop. Put Dawkins on a stage with him, it will appear that he'd been demolished. Put him in a sit-down exchange or video/text exchange, and Craig will fall apart as fast as he did for this guy.


Honestly, whether he was right or not, everything about that guy in the youtube video screams douchebag...

TheoreticalBS's interaction with Craig is laughable. Craig is a fierce opponent. If they sat down and debated, Craig would probably win. Dawkins wouldn't merely "appear" demolished. He WOULD be demolished because his arguments are garbage.

You have lost ALL credibility

Nope, and whatever.

We're at an impasse. Forever in the hypothetical, it seems.

The above is both true and false.

PhiZZiZle is right. Pretending that Dawkins wouldn't be demolished is laughable. So is insisting that Craig fell apart because of some Youtuber who had some limited interaction with a professional philosopher, intellectual, thinker, etc.

Pretending that depriving WLC of his Gish Gallop wouldn't take the wind out of his sails is laughable. So is sitting in astonished disbelief that a professional philosopher, intellectual, thinker, etc. in all of his, ahem... authority managed to make a fool of himself through his interactions with an amateur.

you keep taking for granted your assumption that he made a fool of himself. when quite frankly atheists are so desperate to say that they 'debunked' Craig that they're turning to a tiny interaction with a Youtuber (an interaction that, if complete, would've crushed the Youtuber) as their last means of debunking a powerful and formidable thinker

this is...the very definition of unfortunate.

It's simply my belief that if you deprive this "powerful and formidable thinker" of a forum in which this thinker consistently advances rather, eh... practiced and numerous - numerous - nuuumerous (did I emphasize numerous?) points, and you move him to a forum in which time and formal turn-taking are not issues, you would see that he doesn't do as well.

I'm sorry if you can't see that in this particular (and rare, incidentally) interaction. I hope your obvious inclination toward sparkly, shiny authority didn't bias you.

Almost a wiff of, "I couldn't even bother to watch the entire exchange, but I will carry on about how well WLC did and would have done."
