John G. West Political Scientist and Cultural Critic

Is Richard Dawkins a Coward?

Published at Evolution News

That’s what at least one atheist is now suggesting. Watch this fascinating video documenting how Richard Dawkins says he wants to debate people who disagree with him, but then steadfastly refuses to debate one of his most articulate critics, philosopher and theologian William Lane Craig. Near the end of the video there are some pretty frank comments from a fellow atheist who suggests that Dawkins is acting like a coward. Maybe Dawkins simply has good survival instincts and doesn’t want what happened to leading American Darwinist Francisco Ayala to happen to him.
