Dawkins vs. Craig: Deaf, or blatantly misrepresenting theism?

I stumbled on this video from the recent debate between William Lane Craig et. al and Richard Dawkins et al. which occurred in Mexico. It was via Doug Geivett’s blog (he was another participant in the debate). The video is cut to show Craig’s comments alongside Dawkins’ rebuttals. It seems as though Dawkins either completely missed what Craig was saying, or he is blatantly misrepresenting the case on the other side. I tend to suspect it is the latter, as in the writings of Dawkins which I have read, he doesn’t strike me as the most intellectually honest fellow. Judge for yourself:

The whole debate can be found here.

  1. Interesting. Do you perhaps have a link to an original uncut, unedited version of the debate? This sort of editing can ‘prove’ anything…

    Thanks, Chris.

  2. I watched this whole debate the other night. I noticed, as well, that Dr. Dawkins was never able to answer or respond to any of Dr. Craig’s points. How frustrating that we allow this person to be such a huge part of our global education system. In the Title of this post, did you mean to say “Misrepresenting Atheism” or Misrepresenting Theism”?
