Craig vs. Cooke

Dr. Bill Cooke, whose knowledge of Christian theology seems to grind to a halt in about 1960, 'gives the store away' in this recent debate with Christian philosopher, theologian and apologist Dr William Lane Craig in New Zeland.

Cooke fails to present any arguments for atheism (which he defines atypically), or against Craig's arguments for God, bar some appeals to authority, vague gestures at the problem of evil, and noting the facts that people are small and religious folk sometimes do nasty things! Cooke also clearly agrees with the first premise of Craig's formulation of the moral argument, that in the absence of God objective moral values do not exist.

The audience does a far better job of putting relevant questions and proposed rebuttals to Craig's case than does Cooke!
