← Dealing with William Lane Craig

Debates are a game where you win by putting your argument across convincingly and rebutting your opponents' arguments. Craig does this exceptionally well. As Luke over at Common Sense Atheism tells us, Craig wins most of his debates against atheists.

In fact, most of Craig's opponents tend not to do very well at all. I'm not sure why: either they think that no Christian can possibly be anything other than a fool, or they do some preparation but are then outclassed. Luke has his theories about how to beat Craig and on why atheists lose debates.

I haven't listened to Krauss vs Craig so I can't comment on how Prof Krauss did, but in general there's no point pretending that Craig doesn't win merely because we're not on his side.
