Why Richard Dawkins Won't Debate William Lane Craig

While on the subject of Richard Dawkins, I thought I might take a look at the sad fact of his refusal to debate William Lane Craig who is Christianity's foremost debater on the subject of God's existence (even though all men already have the knowledge of God as stated in Romans 1). This is the reason Dawkins gives:

But I suspect that there are four real reasons why Dawkins refuses to get in the ring with Dr Craig.

Reason 1: The severe lack of evidence for the evolutionary views Dawkins advocates!

Reason 2: William Lane Craig would demolish every argument Dawkins brings forth.

Reason 3: Dawkins does not want to be the next cast member from Expelled to get publicly humiliated by Dr Craig.

and Reason 4: Though Dawkins "does not have the time" to debate William Lane Craig he prefers to use his limited time to try and pick on girls he thinks are an easy target.

I guess Dawkins wants to take the same approach in debating Dr. William Lane Craig the way Norman Geisler refuses to debate Dr. James R. White. Dawkins' and Geisler's positions would be resoundingly defeated in a public debate with these gentlemen. If these Dawkins and Geisler are unable to honestly defend their positions then, by all means, exit stage left.

Isn't that awesome!...none of these men have the ultimate answers. Genesis 1:1, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.". No man has ever been able to refute this truth for the simple truth that no man was present "In the beginning". If the response is, "we conclude by the evidence" may I offer a bit of information, the evidence you use to conclude belongs to the One who created all things "In the beginning"
