Hello, what are the best Theism/Atheism debates you have seen? In your view, who won that debate?

Austin Dacey vs William Lane Craig - Austin Dacey
Sam Harris vs William Lane Craig - Sam Harris
Christopher Hitchens vs William Lane Craig - William Lane Craig (Hitchens was intellectually superior in this debate, but didn't really do a good job refuting Willaim's contentions)

William Lane Craig is the only debater for the side of the theists who does well, and his debates are entertaining regardless of the flaws in his arguments. I would recommend viewing those 3 debates on you-tube.

Steve Parsons v W.L.Craig is a great debate. Also, I'm not 100% sure if Sam Harris one that debate, and I am listening to the Austin one.

Stephen Law (w) vs Bill Craig
Walter Sinnott-Armstrong (w) vs Bill Craig
Jeff Lowder (w) vs Phil Fernandes
Keith parsons (w) vs Bill Craig
Shelly Kagan (w) vs Bill Craig
Vic Stenger vs Bill Craig (w)
Theoretical BS (w) vs Matt slick (not the greatest sound)
Peter Atkins vs Bill Craig (w)

This last debate is about as one-sided as debates can be, but I think Atkins is just a total idiot so it's a guilty pleasure. Also, I'd love to see a lowder-Craig debate, given that this is probably the 2 strongest cases for theism/naturalism I've seen.

Of the WLC debates, I think these are some good reviews

http://commonsenseatheism.com...

My two favorites so far were Price vs. Craig and Kagan vs. Craig (I think Kagan won this one even though I thought he could've used something better than social contract theory).

Here's a pretty good comprehensive list though
