Dear Professor Craig,

I am an atheist and my heroes are scientists or scientifically-spirited people. I have watched many debates on the topic featuring people I respect: Profs. Dawkins, Atkins, Mr. Hitchens, among others. I have continually found pleasure in their battles against the religious side, for they have seemed reasonable. I say "seemed", because after hearing your argue against Prof. Flew, and then lots of other atheists, including Prof. Atkins recently during your tour, I cannot help but feel an enormous amount of respect for you not only as a great debater (and contrary to what some have said, a great sophist), but also as a clear thinker and an intellectually honest man. You even inspire me to study theology. This year I graduate (BA in philosophy) and because of you, there is one more discipline for me to try to study as a doctoral student. I have yet to learn the stuff to be able to check the soundness of your arguments, but their validity, clarity, and rigor have deeply moved me, an atheist, a person who is hoping that your arguments are wrong, but a person who nevertheless is extremely grateful to you for arguing where others appeal to emotion and intimidation. Should you ever change sides and decide to argue for the other side, I think you would have even greater success. But where you are you are much needed.

Thank you Professor Craig for your clarity, your rigor, and your patience with great minds but mean debaters like Prof. Atkins

p.s. Prof. Craig seems like a very busy man, so should he never read this message of a mere student I'll simply be happy that someone else knows how much I appreciate his presence in these debates.

Nice.
