William Lane Craig: Debunked … Again

If you have been reading along for a while you should probably already know that I think William Lane Craig is a crank. A well educated and vociferous crank, but a crank just the same. His debate tactic is that annoying kind of style where he throws out everything he can so there is no time to reply to all of it then declares his opponent offered no evidence and did not speak to all his points. He is truly annoying so it is with some manner of glee that I present this video of his argument on animal pain being taken apart with surgical skill. This is probably the only way to address his speeches, one point at a time with great pains over the details. He is a dangerous idiot because he misleads a lot of people with his rhetoric and lies.

 

As recommended in the comments, here is another debate with WLC where his technique is not able to overcome the failures of his arguments.

  1. This is great!

    I can’t agree more!

    • I’ve never had the time to go through one of his debates and rip it apart. I may still do it one day but there is no one that deserves it more.

    I think you’ll like this debate if you haven’t seen it already – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SiJnCQuPiuo

    Craig gets shown up several times. The 10 minutes of unmoderated discussion starting at approx. 42mins is really good.

  2. Craig is much like William Dembski, the mathematician who throws out bulk math in an attempt to prove that Intelligent Design is behind life’s origin. His presentation has been compared to blowing smoke to confuse and discourage examination of his ideas. I am dumbfounded as to their ability to continue the deception in these modern times.

    I believe the tactic of just throwing out a continuous stream of (often irrelevant) points without really engaging in the debate is known as the “Gish Gallop” named after creationist Duane Gish.

    • Thanks for that. I knew there was a name but couldn’t remember it.
