Agnosticism vs Christianity: William Lane Craig Debates R.I.G. Hughes

In this video, Dr. William Lane Craig debates R.I.G. Hughes on the subject: Agnosticism vs Christianity. This took place at University of South Carolina, sponsored by Campus Crusade for Christ. From YouTube: “Hughes argues for the agnostics’ position by explaining that neither logic nor science has anything to say about the existence of God. Any arguments for God come from an extra-logical premise. Craig reveals, however, that the claim “we cannot know that God exists” is a huge claim that needs to bear the burden of proof. He goes on to show that there are different forms of agnosticism and that rational agnosticism is compatible with Christian faith. Dr. Craig defends theism while presenting a multi-faceted argument for the untenability of agnosticism.” Video part 1 here; part 2 here. Enjoy this old one.

    Another debate where Craig's oppondent is simply outclassed.

    "Another debate where Craig's oppondent is simply outclassed."

    Le sigh. I've recently gotten around to listening to Craig's debates and it is a bummer that it still seems like the last easy defeat of his was against Kagan in 2009.

    The other 2013 one I heard was the Rosenberg debate and that was a bummer as well.
