Craig’s Reformulated Kalam & CosmicSkeptic: Free Will and Other Problems

Craig’s Reformulated Kalam & CosmicSkeptic: Free Will and Other Problems July 17, 2020

Here is the third and final instalment of the critically acclaimed philosophical trilogy looking at criticising the Kalam Cosmological Argument. In this video, I look to continue my commentary and then go back to look at William Lane Craig’s pitiful defence of the idea that God could “choose to create”, “make a decision ” and “use free will” in a tenseless and timeless scenario.

My takeaway feeling is that Craig’s position is weaker than I had ever realised. I thought he would have good defences for his argument and position, but he just doesn’t. He has reformulated the KCA to a more modest format and then concedes that he can’t use inductive arguments to defend the first premise: that they are mere metaphysical assertions.

Anyway, see what you think:
