August 24, at 2: However if a female wants to sit on the couch and allow a man to support her she is a fat selfish whore? People who have spent their time relentlessly working their way to get somewhere…these people have every right to decide not to date a person who wants to spend the day watching tv instead of working. They also have a right to look for someone who is headed down the same path as them…I am not a selfish whore who is incapable of love because I refuse to date someone who is expecting me to financially support them.
As far as I can tell, he has won nearly all his debates with atheists. For some atheists, it is rather maddening. Craig is a skilled debater, an encyclopedia of facts and quotes, and a careful rhetorician.
If you make a logical mistake, Craig knows exactly how to skewer you for it and for this, I respect him. He holds prepared and persuasive responses to everything an atheist might say, and atheists usually fail to clearly point out the logical flaws in what Craig has to say.
Also, Craig does a great job of summarizing the points and counterpoints that have been raised during a debate, and presents them in a way to show he has decisively won. His opponents are never that organized or clear. So it should be easy for atheists to prepare for a debate with Craig.

Dacey [ video ] Craig gives his usual arguments. Dacey responds with 5 facts that fit better with atheism than with theism: Dacey responds to the First Cause argument by saying that some scientists think the Big Bang does not explain the initial bang, but rather what happened after the bang.
About fine-tuning, Dacey says we might someday in the future discover how physical properties emerged from simple rules. There are so many good arguments against fine-tuning, and again Dacey chooses just about the weakest counter-argument he could have picked. Dacey 2 [ audio ] Dacey gives the same arguments as in their previous debate, and Craig sticks to only 2 arguments: Kalam and the Resurrection.
This debate is mostly a repeat of their previous debate, but a little better. Craig seems to win this one simply by presenting more information and argument than Dacey does — basically, by talking faster. Price [ audio ] A great debate between two people who really know their stuff.
This is a hard question for Craig to answer, and Bradley is a good debater — on both the emotional and intellectual levels.
This might be a debate that Craig lost. Parsons [ audio ] This is the other debate Craig may have lost.
