5 arguments for God's existence

William Lane Craig responds to Richard Dawkins's book The God Delusion, which I've recently read.

ADDED: I believe Dawkins's basic arguments in The God Delusion can be whittled down to three.
  1. God doesn't exist because I don't like him. Especially the God of the Old Testament. Yuck.
  2. Question authority, especially religious "authority." Do this because I'm telling you to.
  3. Evolution is the answer to everything. I know it's the answer to everything because if it wasn't, we wouldn't have an answer. Or we wouldn't eventually find out the answer. Because it will eventually answer everything, it is the answer to everything. It is this way because I'm telling you it is this way.


  1. Hi,

    You are contradicting yourself so bad man...evolution is a joke and everyone knows that. In fact the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it's been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books of the future.

    Not because there isn't another reasonable explanation, we have to believe in the lie of evolution. Evolution is full of contradictions and doesn't explain anything.

    Read for yourself and don't follow blind and empty explanations.

    PS: If I said to you "I don't like you", then you doesn't exist...? Especially the Matt Brown of 2010...?


  2. Anon: I'm giving my interpretation of Dawkins's arguments. They are not my own. And, clearly, not "everyone" believes that "evolution is a joke." Many people are quite serious about that belief.
