Richard Dawkins wins- "the worst atheistic argument in the history of Western thought."


Christian Philosopher Dr. William Lane Craig has recently co-edited a new book entitled Contending with Christianity's Critics. In the book, various apologists, theologians, and philosophers set out to answer the New Atheists and other common objections raised against the Christian Worldview.

Chapter 1 has been made available online and includes Craig's critique of Richard Dawkins' "central argument" in The God Delusion. Craig's final assessment of the argument?

"Several years ago my atheist colleague Quentin Smith unceremoniously crowned Stephen Hawking’s argument against God in A Brief History of Time as “the worst atheistic argument in the history of Western thought.” With the advent of The God Delusion the time has come to relieve Hawking of this weighty crown and to recognize Richard Dawkins’s accession to the throne."


You can check out the entire chapter here.

Courage and Godspeed,
