A Christian Apologist Just Debated Richard Dawkins… Kind Of

Christian apologist William Lane Craig recently debated Richard Dawkins on stage at the Contending with Christianity’s Critics Conference at a church in Dallas, Texas.

There’s just one problem with that: Richard Dawkins doesn’t debate Creationists.

How does that work, exactly…?

Simple. Craig, taking a page from the book of Clint Eastwood for some odd reason, put an empty chair onstage and pretended it was Dawkins:

William Lane Craig talks to ‘Richard Dawkins’

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. William Lane Craig is used to talking to people who aren’t really there.

The debate took place for 42 minutes. The video is below… the comments are disabled as you might expect:

To no one’s surprise, the chair won the debate.

    “William Lane Craig is used to talking to people who aren’t really there.”
    ??
    how do you figure that?
    you consider Dawkins (debated in Mexico), Shermer, Krauss, etc, etc, etc.. people with no intellectual muscle?

    you’re ignoring reality, right?

    Wow! That went straight over your head, didn’t it? He was saying that Craig is used to talking to God and implying that God isn’t really there.
