An extract for someone I know to illustrate some content from Dr Craig & that is likely interesting to others also.

Some of this is “heavier philosophy”, but I find the way of thinking fascinating somehow – mostly in matters more relevant to normal life than ‘intentionality’, discussed here. This is likely because philosophy is really something that everyone “tries their hand at”, without realizing they do & even the most educated in other professions make basic mistake in reasoning & logic that just exposes a basic deficiency in their ability to reason things through … and what is a more basic requirement for educators & “opinion makers” of the “class of fame” of Richard Dawkins and the like. If they are found out failing in logical & reasoning capability, how can we take them seriously?

Dawkins actually made a famous error of the same kind – maybe depending on who you ask. The issue was confusing mechanism & agency in the very famous God Delusion Debate with John Lennox.
