Richard Dawkins's refusal to debate William Lane... →
This is a criticism of Dawkins’ open refusal to debate Craig in Oxford this Tuesday posted on The Guardian’s Comment is Free: Belief-section. For more anti-intellectual cynicism of the a-theist variety, have a look at the comments. There is a lot.
GeoChristian on "Free thinkers" →
Why do “free-thinkers” all come to the same conclusions? Is it permissible for a skeptic to be skeptical about skepticism?
