Matt 24 Watch, 142b: The "is God a Delusion?" no-show empty chair lecture and panel at Oxford Oct25, 2011 -- let's roll the tape

The No-show lecture and panel response at Oxford's Sheldonian Theatre:

As the blurb records:
http://reasonablefaith.org - Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford (October 25, 2011) Richard Dawkins was invited by the Oxford student Christian Union to defend his book The God Delusion in public debate with William Lane Craig. The invitation remained open until the last minute. However, Dawkins refused the challenge and his chair remained empty. Craig then gave a lecture to a capacity audience on the weaknesses of the central arguments of the book and responded to a panel of academics. The event, which was chaired by atheist Prof. Peter Millican, was part of The Reasonable Faith Tour 2011 sponsored by UCCF, Damaris & Premier Christian Radio.

Sit back, relax and listen for the next two hours or so. And, notice, professor Craig is introduced by an Oxford professor of philosophy, who was his opposite in a debate only a few days previous, at Birmingham where Craig did his Phil Ph.D under John Hick. END

PS: If you are concerned about professor Dawkins' irresponsible and reckless false accusation of Christian support for genocide [BTW, did it ever dawn on this gentleman that the texts in question are in the specifically Jewish portion of the scriptures, as in . . .  this blood libel has antisemitic overtones too], cf here, and the immediately previous posts in this blog series here and here.
