Probabilistic Arguments for the Existence of God: James Croft Vs. David Glass on ‘Unbelievable?’

Last week I appeared for the third time on Premier Christian Radio’s discussion show Unbelievable?, hosted by Justin Brierley. This time I was speaking with David Glass (a Lecturer in the University of Ulster’s School of Computing and Mathematics) about his new book, Atheism’s New Clothes: Exploring and Exposing the Claims of the New AtheistsWe focus most on the probabilistic arguments for god Glass offers, which I think are way off-base.

Listen to the discussion here!

You can also listen to me first and second appearances on the show:

    James. You were outstanding on this show – you didn’t let him get Away with anything. Your precision meant that for once you weren’t Talking past each other. becuase you listened carefully to what he had to say, then impelled him to defend his assumptions – which are too often implicit or go unchallenged. he Was metaphorically on the ropes by the end. Furthermore you are unfaiingly polite, at The same time without taking a backward Step in launching an assault on the wooly theistic Thinking. A bravura performance. More to come I Hope.
