This is very entertaining. Around 2:45 he states (para) "we don't need to be able to explain the designer. That can be left an open question." So if we can explain it back to the singularity, why do we need to insist that there was a god to begin with? Can't we leave the first cause as an open question?

Then his final argument is that the mind is quite simple. Ah... so it wouldn't bother you if it evolved? how about if it evolved within the species and it was therefore "micro-evolution"? Come on Craig... you've heard the arguments that we have to deal with. You just made our day.

Finally, God is specific, so what God is the God of ID? Certainly not the Abrahamic. Do you tell your followers this? Nice find Max.

I just about followed him completely around that circle. LOL.

An explanation of an explanation of and explanation. He was so close to understanding the reason for the argument he just decided to take a shit on it instead.

that is really stupid, by that logic then why bother and try to explain the creation of our world with God. Isn't that the religious explanation to explaining our world. then just leave as we know it by methods of observation and experimentation. No need to try to find and explanation (GOD) for what we already know through scientific methods. Religious zealots if anybody are the ones regressing or taking it a step further with putting GOD as an explanation.

So he doesn't need an explanation of the explanation? Wow...I'm sorry but I would like a supposed infinite regression of explanations of the explanation because with each explanation wouldn't one gain a greater understanding of their environment and the current situation that requires the explanation? Isn't that what science is for and the scientific method?
Also, he seems quite certain about the mind/body issue as god is just an immaterial mind...would he so liberal with his mind and allow us to remove his brain, or parts of, to test his inferred belief that the mind can exist without material trappings? I would doubt it.
