Go to: Why I refuse to debate with William Lane Craig

Paley's Avatar Jump to comment 196 by Paley

These are Dr. Craig's credentials from Wikipedia.

Craig received a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications from Wheaton College, Illinois, in 1971 and two summa cum laude master's degrees from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, in 1975, in philosophy of religion and ecclesiastical history.[4] He earned a Ph.D. in philosophy under John Hick at the University of Birmingham, England in 1977 and a Th.D. under Wolfhart Pannenberg at the University of Munich in 1984.[5] From 1980 to 1986 he was an assistant professor of philosophy at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He briefly held the position of associate professor of religious studies at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, from 1986 to 1987. From 1987 to 1994 Craig pursued further research at the University of Leuven, Belgium. Since 1996 he has held the position of research professor of philosophy at Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada, California.[5]

Go to: Announcing The Clergy Project - Support for pastors and priests leaving the pulpit

Paley's Avatar Jump to comment 24 by Paley

As a committed Christian, I applaud your efforts in finding an exit strategy for those who have lost their faith. The church is not helped with unbelievers in the pulpit. I believe this effort will actually strengthen the church.

Go to: Rick Perry's God

Paley's Avatar Jump to comment 39 by Paley

Hitchens' vitriol casts more light on his heart than on Perry's religious affections. Since most Americans (like Perry and Obama and Clinton) believe in God I would think that America would be a most undesirable place for Mr. Hitchens to visit or live.

Go to: Republicans Against Science

Perry is right, there are many scientists who doubt the Darwinian Theory. See the following link

edit - this comment had been flagged, but I edited so that it is real link and it's easier to see just who these willfully stupid "scientests" are. There are a whole 4 of them. Also good to see which "universities" claim them so that anyone going there can rethink their choices /Mike

Go to: Invest in the future of the movement—help us bring more students to the CFI Leadership Conference!

"...and train the next generation of leaders"

And what exactly is this training? How to think freely? That is, free to think about everything except theism ... that is off limits.
