Some interesting Q & A from philosopher-apologist William Lane Craig.
First, a question inspired by internet crapola, Bill Maher’s Religulous, etc:
Jesus’ story cribbed from earlier Egyptian sources?
Son, let me take you out behind the shed.
Any good analogies for understanding the Trinity?
Yes – our old friend Cerberus! Woof! (Woof, woof.)
“Clearly one animal”? I think not! I’m with Dan on this one: three animals with overlapping bodies. Each woofing. So only a good analogy for tritheism.
Why, among all the religions, Christianity?
A deft summary of recent resurrection arguments:
So, he goes 2-1 here.
In other Craig- and youtube-related news, this semester my class and I watched and analyzed Craig’s recent (Oct 2011) debate with Peter Millican of Oxford. While not without problems on both sides, I think it may be the best atheist-theist debate I’ve seen.
I would say, despite his dodgy moral argument, that Craig did better. (I say dodgy because I think he needs to show there to be a contradiction between naturalism and moral realism, but he does not do that. Also, I’m unclear on just what sort of moral theory he means to commit too – something in the area of divine command theory, but it is not clear.) But view it and see what you think.
So, 3-1. Not too shabby, Answer Man!
