Dr. William Lane Craig Goes Head-to-Head with The Four Horsemen of the New Atheism

Dr. William Lane Craig has now crossed swords with each of the "Four Horsemen" of the New Atheism in some form or another.

Craig recently debated Sam Harris on the topic of Is Good from God?

The audio can be found here. The debate site is here.

Further, a transcript of the debate can be found here.

Dr. Craig has also debated Christopher Hitchens. Information regarding that debate can be found here.

Dr. Craig discusses this debate here.

He has participated in a debate with Richard Dawkins on the topic of Does the Universe Have Purpose?

That audio can be found here.

Finally, Craig has interacted with Daniel Dennett and his arguments and you can listen to that audio here.

I encourage our readers to see how Dr. Craig fairs as he goes head-to-head with the best the New Atheism has to offer.

As always, thanks to Apologetics315 for all the great audio!

Courage and Godspeed,

Hey man, nice post.
But I'm sorry but these are definitely not 'some of the best atheism has to offer'!
There are far more atheists who have much better arguments, who are more consistent in their views and are just a lot more challenging for the Christian to deal with.
People like Austin Dacey, Graham Oppy, Greg Dawes, Michael Martin etc.

Hello Michael,

Thank you for the comment! First off, please note that I did write some of the best atheism has to offer. I completely agree that Dacey, Martin, and Oppy present more coherent, intellectually sophisticated arguments. I would also add Quentin Smith to the list.

However, my point in wording this post in the manner above was simply to highlight that it seems many in the atheist camp believe Harris, Dawkins, "The Hitch," and Dennett to be the best of the best.

Perhaps it would more correct to say the best the "New Atheism" has to offer?

I hope that makes sense and clears up any misunderstanding.

" would be more correct..."
