Weekend recap: my series on William Lane Craig is finished!

Wee! So I’m now completely done with my series on William Lane Craig, and also with the bigger series I began at the start of the month on arguments for the existence of God. Here’s the complete series on Craig: [Read more...]

On Dawkins’ refusal to debate Craig

Craig is famous for his debates with atheists, but one atheist who has repeatedly refused to debate Craig is Richard Dawkins. Dawkins initially refused because he had no idea who Craig was, and later, when he learned more about Craig, because of Craig’s defense of genocide (which I discussed while discussing Craig’s moral argument).

Why is Craig so dishonest?

Now that I’ve thoroughly documented Craig’s dishonesty, I want to say a bit about why Craig is so dishonest. I’ve written before about what Craig really thinks of reason, and given his views, it isn’t surprising that he doesn’t really care whether his arguments are any good. But there are a couple telling comment he’s made that [Read More...]

While I apparently have some idea of what I’m doing as a writer since all of you read my blog, I’m not always very [Read More...]

Craig’s case for the resurrection of Jesus

The Craig’s last major argument for the existence of God is his claim that the resurrection of Jesus can be shown to have happened using standard historical methods. Now, I’ve previously written that  the vast majority of non-Christians (as well as many liberal Christians) don’t think the gospels, the Bible’s accounts of Jesus’ life, are historically [Read More...]

William Lane Craig’s moral argument

Now for Craig’s moral argument (or “axiological argument”), which I’ve sometimes thought is Craig’s worst argument (though picking a single worst argument from Craig is hard). Here’s the basic argument: [Read more...]
