This post is part of a series of posts on the subject of a debate that occurred at Cambridge University between Dr. William Lane Craig and Dr. Arif Ahmed. The topic is “Does God Exist?”.
Please listen to the first two speeches (at least) before voting.
I closed the poll after 1 week.
|Wiliam Lane Craig, by a landslide||
|Wiliam Lane Craig, but it’s close||
|Too close to call||
|Arif Ahmed, but it’s close||
|Arif Ahmed, by a landslide||
Please leave your comments about who you think about who is winning and why. Please keep comments SHORT – less than 300 words, please.
I am especially interested in hearing from young earth creationists and their response to Craig and Ahmed’s views on the big bang theory, and what it implies. (I am not a young earth creationist – I think the big bang is based on reliable science, including the red-shifting of light from distant galaxies, the light element abundance predictions and the cosmic background radiation predictions)
Note: I wrote an e-mail to Dr. Ahmed to follow up with him, and got a very gracious reply. He thought that the fine-tuning issue was the most interesting, and he did not change his mind about the intellectual viability of Craig’s worldview as a result of the debate. Anyway, try to be nice. Nicer than me, I mean!
I will not be available to approve comments on Thursday night from 6 PM to about 2 AM on Friday morning.
