Upcoming Debate: William Lane Craig vs. Michael Tooley

Philosophers William Lane Craig and Michael Tooley are set to debate the question “Is God real?” on March 24, 2010, at the University of North Carolina Charlotte at 7:00 p.m.  The debate is being hosted by Ratio Christi Student Apologetics Alliance, a ministry of Southern Evangelical Seminary.

Craig and Tooley debated once before in 1994 on God’s existence, and the transcript is here (unfortunately, neither audio or video appears to be available).

Three years ago, Tooley debated Peter Van Inwagen on the existence of God at Amherst College.  The debate was covered by the Amherst College newspaper, though the original story seems to have been taken down.  A cached copy is available here.

It will be interesting to see whether Tooley repeats the strategy he took with Inwagen by offering the problem of evil as his sole argument against God’s existence.
