Oxford Atheist Calls Richard Dawkins "Coward" for Not Debating William Lane Craig

"@Diaz Focusing only on part of WLC's "arguments" is how he "wins". Defeat in detail. As already said, one of his tricks is to throw out so many points that they are impossible to refute in the time allotted. Even if one were…"

Steve replied to Trevor's discussion 'Are atheists persecuted in the US?'

Evolution - We win

"There is some evidence that Tibeteans have evolved further in the time span of only several thousand years. They live comfortably at such high altitudes and can bind more oxygen in their blood than other humans. Tests suggest that the causes are…"

Steve replied to Jon van Rooyen's discussion 'Would indoctrinated kids be able to grasp the fundamentals of math and science in school if they weren't limited by religious beliefs?'

Steve replied to Daniel's discussion 'Free will seems like a non-issue.'

Steve commented on Rocky Oliver (LotusGeek)'s blog post 'Tough, somewhat embarrassing situation for me; time to share...'

Steve replied to Diego Alejandro Garzon's discussion 'Atheist view on sex'
"People don't magically become mature at 18. It's just an arbitrary date. Yeah, we expect people to be grown up by then, but some are mature before that and some aren't after. It comes down to education. Teenagers should be taught…"
