    William Craig Lane

    ------------------------------------
    "So whom does God wrong in commanding the destruction of the Canaanites? Not the Canaanite adults, for they were corrupt and deserving of judgment. Not the children, for they inherit eternal life. So who is wronged? Ironically, I think the most difficult part of this whole debate is the apparent wrong done to the Israeli [sic] soldiers themselves. Can you imagine what it would be like to have to break into some house and kill a terrified woman and her children? The brutalising effect on these Israeli [sic] soldiers is disturbing."

    This is the first time I heard his views.

    And all I can say what a piece of work is man!





    Little Fly, Thy summer's play
    My thoughtless hand has brushed away.

    I too dance and drink, and sing,
    Till some blind hand shall brush my wing.

    Therefore I am a happy fly,
    If I live or if I die.

    I think William Lane Craig is literally the best Christianity has got. He is a monster debater. I think he beat Christopher Hitchens in their debate, but Craig lost to Sam Harris. Sam Harris rocks.

    The irony, considering that craig himself always appeals to emotion to prove his premise of the existence of objective morality. But he always gets away with it with his high school debate tactics which he is pretty good at.

    Yeah I've seen the debate between Craig and Hitchens, and I have to say he pummeled Hitchens in that debate.

    But I havent seen Craig versus harris though. Do you have a link of the debate somewhere?

    The man is dangerous!

    But then again I have heard similiar thing from other faithfuls. if God said kill women and children then that would be classed as being Good and not evil.

    Religion certainly perverts our natural sense of justice!

    I agree Gladfly, a great example of how religion can corrupt people.

    Not the children, for they inherit eternal life. 


    Craig believes that the psychological trauma and excruciating pain experienced by children who were being murdered is inconsequential.

    Not to mention that they probably witnessed their parents being killed before their eyes... trivial presumably according to Craig.

    Quote
    Only those who remained behind were to be utterly exterminated. No one had to die in this whole affair."


    Like Dawkins pointed out, Craig believes it was the victim's fault for being murdered because they didn't run away. A bit like it's a rape victim's fault for dressing in a sexually arousing manner.... They were asking for it!

    Presumably none of the inhabitants were infirmed, mentally ill, or disabled and literally couldn't run away!

    Craig is another reason why I support the 'new atheist' movement.

    Because at this point they'll support anyone who can put up a decent showing in these silly debates. They really have been going through a rough patch in recent seasons.

    That is a terrific debate where Mr. William Lane Craig  tries to hide behind religions and religious scriptures of OT, NT and by default Quran on moral attitude of Human  beings towards each other and towards other life on the planet.     You should watch total debate asbdsp... there are more jokes in it..

    Sam is a terrific explorer of science its connection to so-called Human morality.. here is more fun with  some fool who thinks himself as Super Juice..  

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwG9pDNSAXA


    what these religious bums, (I MEAN PREACHERS not those who keep religion personal & with in self)  do is play semantic games with words from those silly books written 1000s of years back and couple  them to modern science.  Anyways read Sam's recent article The Mystery of Consciousness II

    OMG what a complete scumbag!

    Hell is an absurd & wicked fiction. You're not a bad person for rejecting something that's cruel, irrational, unjust & lacks evidence. You have nothing to fear. Nothing to feel ashamed about. Enjoy your life. Do the best you can. Make yourself & others happy.

    I don't think Harris owned him at all. I think Sammy delivered his points rather poorly, and his red herrings didn't help.

    Craig is clearly a sophist, but an experienced one. It's frustrating watching scientists and polemical writers fall on their faces due to relative lack of philosophical training or inexperience in live debates.

    Have you heard the good news? There is no God!

    `But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
     `Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here. I'm mad.  You're mad.'
     `How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
     `You must be,' said the Cat, `or you wouldn't have come here.'
