Atheist Richard Dawkins has chickened-out of a philosophical debate with Christian apologist William Lane Craig. Dawkins has debated other Christians but refuses to debate Craig. Why? Craig has debated atheist Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris and he has no fear of debating Dawkins. Why does Dawkins refuse to debate Craig? Maybe he fears the challenge? There is a challenge coming up Oct. 25, 2011 at Oxford. Will Dawkins show up?
I’m not a advocate of fights. Such are reserved for ringside seats at the wrestling rings. However, debates such as these help thinking people hash out the existence or non-existence of God, and other meaningful philosophical issues regarding the reason for our existence. Would such philosophical debates be useful for most common people?
