He deploys all of his greatest arguements and you have to admit
on 27 October 2016
William Lane Craig is without doubt the most popular and certainly the most effective Christian apologist alive today.Here he authors a manual intended to teach the unschooled beleiver in Apologetics. He deploys all of his greatest arguements and you have to admit, they are the greatest arguements for Christianity that exist.
Here they are:
Life without gods must be sad.
There is no point in being good without Yaweh.
If life ends then life is pointless.
Atheists who are happy are pretending they are.
Everything has a cause, except god..he just..just doesnt need one OK? Hes outside space and time..but hes got a mind....and dont think about that too much.
The universe cant exist out of neccessity because other universes could exist....and ...umm...thats the reason.
If the universe exists, then the explaination must be a god...no other explanations possible. And a god is a "trancendent" mind.
God exists because he told John Hick to teach Craig theology and god paid Craig to study it.He also seems to have paid for Craigs mansion and Jetsetting life of luxury, via Craigs gullible victims.
Time began, so there must have been something before time...mayby a half hour before time began...
The universe is fine tuned for life...or our 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% of it is fine tuned for life. Because life couldnt possibly adapt to the conditions in a universe.
If god dosnt exist , then moral objectivity dosnt exist..because...because...god is morality...because he just is. Ive decided he is. There!
God allows suffering because he just can. Dont question him.
A 30 year old carpenter was god because his mates said he rose from the dead...and they wouldnt lie.
And there we have it.
Thats the book.
If you think its worth lining Craigs voluminous pockets then I am sure that will widen his smirk even further.
