William Lane Craig vs Sean Carroll

These excerpts are great, because the entire debate (plus the Q&A at the end) is nearly three hours long - and there's a definite limit to how long I can stand to listen to William Lane Craig!

This is common, though. I frequently hear people with almost no understanding of science confidently claim that they can refute cosmologists, biologists, climatologists - the people who actually know something about the issue they think they can disprove. Science is based on evidence. Scientific theories aren't just opinions!

In this particular case, William Lane Craig makes a good living telling people what they want to believe, and I really doubt if this debate will change that. But it's fun to hear Sean Carroll tearing his arguments to shreds, isn't it?
