British Humanists Run From William Lane Craig!
If there is one debate I wish I could travel to see, it would be this one! Several British organizations have been trying to get Professor Richard Dawkins and a few other prominent atheists to debate Dr. Craig... but that has been easier said than done. One atheist, Polly Toynbee who is also the president of the British Humanist Association, was to debate Dr.Craig on October 17th; however, she later declined. Stephen Law will be her replacement. Additionally, it was highly anticipated that atheist professor Richard Dawkins would be debating Dr. Craig on October 25th, but he refused to debate him. An empty chair will be set up on the Sheldonian Theatre stage should Dawkins change his mind; and Craig will speak on the flaws of Dawkins' book The God Delusion if Dawkins doesn't show up. From what I hear, this should be a very interesting series of debates and it is highly anticipated. In this amusing video, watch as atheists from the British Humanist Association "decline" to debate Dr. Craig... I think Sam Harris was right when he said that Dr. Craig is "the one Christian apologist who seems to put the fear of God into many of my fellow atheists."
