    Hi Sola Ratione, I can see your point, but did Craig set the moot at all? I was under the impression he simply agreed to it. If I were defending that moot, I might take a very similar strategy to Craig, because I assume that people are able to read and understand plain English, and that whoever who set the moot phrased it the way they meant to phrase it. It’s not like this is a junior school debate where precision isn’t necessarily to be expected. The topic is there evidence for God is quite specific: it means what it says. The fact that some people are inclined to qualify it implicitly, with words like “sufficient” and so on, isn’t really Craig’s problem, surely? In any case, he very adequately defended far more than the moot required.

    Kind regards,
    Bnonn
