manicstreetpreacher hopes a few of Craig’s future opponents cop a glance at this!
I have referred to Lukeprog over at Common Sense Atheism as a “fawning Craigophile” more than once on this blog. I mean, it’s just not normal for an atheist to heap so much praise on a complete fundamentalist hack who continues to use the same flawed reasoning, despite having been corrected ad nauseum. Nevertheless, Luke redeems himself on occasion by posting some cracking refutations of Craig, and this is one of them.
Th1sWasATriumph has compiled the following YouTube playlist refuting each one of Craig’s lame “arguments”, skilfully demonstrating the shambolic logic and hopeless contradictions in Craig’s reasoning with more than a dash of good old fashioned British irony that frequently strays into the wrong (i.e. the right, when Craig is concerned) side of contempt.
1. Kalam Cosmological Argument
2. Fine Tuning Argument
3. Objective Moral Values
4. Resurrection of Jesus Christ
5. Personal Experience of God
The videos are culled from Craig’s opening statement during his debate against British, then an atheist now a deist possibly due to old age and senility, philosopher Antony Flew. You can listen to the audio or watch the videos, which start below.
At the time of publication, I hadn’t watched the full debate for myself. I can’t bear watching Craig any more than necessary and to compound the agony, hardly any of his atheist opponents actually do their homework properly and try to beat him. I’ll have to go off Lukeprog’s fawning opinion that instead of rebutting Craig’s arguments, Flew goes on a weak, rambling rant about how we can’t know about things outside the universe, about how eternal torture is bad and his talks are so confused he seems downright senile.
Would explain a lot regarding Flew’s subsequent conversion to deism…
