One of Britain’s foremost philosophical atheists, A C Grayling, vice-president of the British Humanist Association, is denying that he has ever debated William Lane Craig. In a letter dated 18th May 2011, he states: “. . . By the way, Craig claims to have debated me before – that is not correct, unless a brief and rather pointless exchange of emails counts as such.”
This is a surprising denial, since he did in fact participate in a debate with Craig at the Oxford Union in 2005. The topic was “Belief in God makes sense in light of Tsunamis” (you can listen to the exchange at bethinking.org or apologetics315).
It’s not surprising that he blocked out the entire event. Grayling got walloped. And he’s still rehearsing the same old tired arguments.
