Antony Flew v William Lane Craig debate "Does God Exist?"

In 1948 Bertrand Russell and Frederick Copleston debated the existance of God on the BBC radio. That debate was considered the definitive debate of that generation.

Fifty years later, to commemorate this debate, a debate re-examining the arguments for and against the existence of God was arranged between William Lane Craig and Antony Flew before 4,000 students at the University of Wisconsin in 1998.

Flew has since, famously, become a theist but at the time he was one of the world's leading atheists so this is a great engagement of minds. This debate is now online. Watch and enjoy.
