Anyone who finds this offensive: keep in mind you are getting irked by a picture of a person who probably never existed giving you the finger. That is all.

Oh, by the way Filo, you're goung to put a "FUCK YOU" avatar so people can see what message you're trying to convey? On an internet forum? Are you serious?

Of course. The only time Craig has been clearly defeated, which says a lot about Craig's superb debating skills.

Yeah I checked some WLC material a some time ago for the first time when Seingeist introduced him in the Bible Question Thread. Since then I regularly develop an interest on the topic and check out relevant vids or news related to debating. I do this intensly for a few weeks at a time until my interest stops (for a while at least). The Kagan/Craig debate was one of the first I watched.

Craig is a remarkable individual. He manages to win debates despite using the same arguments over and over again since 20 years ago. His debaters are usually not as trained in debating, not as prepared and not as eloquent as Craig. Out of all the debates I've seen, Kagan was the only one that clearly beat him, and Peter Millican did a good job as well.

It's annoying that his debaters are so unprepared when they face him... I mean for the last five years or so Craig's been quoting the Borde-Guth-Vilenkin theorem to support his trademark cosmological argument by stating that said theorem proves the universe cannot be infinite in the past and therefore must have a beginning, and since nothing can come from nothing... enter God. Yet not a single debater has been able to do as Craig and quote the same Alan Guth and Alexander Vilenking saying about their theorem that the universe can come from literally nothing. I mean, Vilenkin even wrote a paper titles "Creation of Universes from Nothing" that he starts defining thus: "A cosmological model is proposed in which the universe is created by quantum tunneling from literally nothing".

You do not win debates by holding the most plausible arguments, you do it by exposing them properly and convincing your audience. Craig is a master in that.

That's what irritates me immensly as well! Both Guth and Vilenkin, who wrote the paper, don't believe in god and say that universe did come from nothing. Additionally, it's weird that Craig states that infinity cannot exist in the real world and then refers to the Big Bang singularity "of infinite density" . Talk about being contradictive!

I've studied some physics related to my degree in Engineering (of course nothing so advanced) and it baffles me that no one attacks the faulty physics in Craig's cosmological argument. I posted a vid about it in the Bible Question thread, it's probably the last post in that thread since no one commented on it. Good stuff .

Does everyone approve of that? Do I need the approval of everyone before deciding which avatar I will or wont use? Maybe I'll use this thread to do that, ask people what they think about EVERY SINGLE avatar/signature choice I make before I make it. Because, you know, I'm all about being respectful and I'm soooooo not wanting to hurt the feelings of anyone

I love people with huge egos (like Fed).

I agree. What are your thoughts on death? I'm reading Julian Barnes' Nothing to be Frightened Of where he discusses his fear of death and his lack of religiousness. To me, and to put it simplistically, religion makes death mpre acceptable - insofar as death could ever be acceptable - for people as it gives them some sort of promise of an afterlife. It seems like it's easy to dismiss it when you're young and death is generally quite far away; but what if you're suddenly faced with it, either your own or someone that you love? I can't foresee religion ever being a source of comfort for me (which is why I've taken to reading that Barnes book) but I just wonder what normal atheists think of this. It's okay to think of myself fading into oblivion once I die, but it's hard to really accept this when it comes to the people that I love.

I don't think I've expressed myself well but I hope you get what I mean.

Because the easiest thing in the world is to be indifferent to things around you. And that doesn't go well with me. I always give-a-damn (though I suffer frequently for it, but I learn more about life, just because I take the punches). We are in the world to know the truth of things, not while time away because everything seemingly ends at nothing.

Knowing your recent history, that would be nice.
