William Lane Craig has said that Richard Dawkins's "argument for atheism is a failure even if we concede, for the sake of argument, all its steps. But, in fact, several of these steps are plausibly false. [1]

Dr. William Lane Craig is one of Christianity's leading defenders and many individuals over the years have attempted to arrange a debate between Dr. Craig and Richard Dawkins. Richard Dawkins has offered various ruses on why he will not debate William Lane Craig, which Dr. Craig supporters have shown were inconsistent and merely a dodge to avoid debating one of Christianity's strongest advocates.[2][3]

There is now growing public pressure for Dawkins to debate the Christian philosopher of science and Christian apologist Dr. William Lane Craig.[4][5] For example, currently there is a petition for Richard Dawkins debate William Lane Craig. [6] YouTube recently featured a video which incorporates an audio excerpt of Craig stating that he would like to debate Dawkins and also features Dr. Craig commenting on Dawkins' refusal to debate him.[7]

Richard Dawkins has publicly declared he will not debate creationists.[3] Yet, Richard Dawkins debated the theist John Lennox who adheres to the position of intelligent design.[3] According to Richard Dawkins, intelligent design is a form of creationism/creation science.[3] Therefore, Richard Dawkins is not consistent concerning his assertion that he will not debate creationists.[3] When Richard Dawkins refused to debate Dr. William Lane Craig one of the ruses Richard Dawkins used was supposedly because Dr. Craig was a creationist and Richard Dawkins claimed he didn't debate creationist.[3] Richard was called on his inconsistency concerning refusing to debate Dr. Craig.[3]
