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.

The debate, hosted at Purdue University, was watched online live around the world with all 50 states represented and over 60 countries and the conversation trended (top spot for a few hours) on Twitter (#GODdebate).

A potential spoiler, or something to attract your attention more… post debate voting about the best argument was 4-2 by the formal panel, 1390-303 by the audience, 734-59 online. You can watch & guess which side got the mentioned votes. Also note the bottom of this post after you watched. (more…)

Dawkins says that “…if Jesus knew what we know today, He would have been an atheist”. If Dawkins took the Bible seriously he would not spew out ‘intellectual vomit’ like this.

Richard Dawkins doesn’t recommend atheism, but militant atheism. What if the militant atheists get their way? What would they prefer to have written into law?
