Angry Atheists? chapter 10: William Lane Craig exposed

So I’m doing this project where I’m writing a book, and when I finish a draft of a chapter, I post it for anyone to read for free using Google Docs. I’ve just finished putting together the chapter titled “William Lane Craig exposed.” (I had previously posted an incomplete version of the chapter.) Read it here. [Read more...]

Will Craig’s Christian fans admit he’s made some godawful arguments?

I’m almost done putting together my chapter for The Book on William Lane Craig, but as I was writing it, something occurred to me: have any of Craig’s Christian fans ever admitted that yes, Craig has made some godawful arguments? Something like, “Craig is a good philosopher, and his Kalam cosmological argument is an important contribution to philosophy, so [Read More...]

Victor Stenger on William Lane Craig

Why Craig’s case for the resurrection is dishonest

This is the other post I wanted to do in response to Jeff Lowder. In the first one, I documented a pattern of William Lane Craig misrepresenting his opponents’ views. Here, I’m going to bring together previous points I’ve made about Craig’s case for the resurrection (here and here, among other places), to make it [Read More...]

Free chapter from my book as a PDF

When my first book went out of print, the rights reverted to me so now I can do whatever I want with it. I’ve so far decided against self-publishing it, but after blogging so much about William Lane Craig’s dishonesty, I’ve decided it would be helpful to publish one chapter as a free PDF.
