Part 2 Of William Lane Craig's Podcast Discussion Of His Debate With Richard Carrier

See here. Craig discusses a large variety of problems with Carrier's argumentation during the debate and in other contexts. He discusses Paul's view of the resurrection, Carrier's claims about the genre of the gospels, his assertions about Barabbas, etc. Craig comments that though it's a good idea to check people's sources as a general practice, it's especially important to do so with Carrier, since he so often misrepresents his sources. In the process of preparing for the debate, Craig was disturbed by Carrier's misrepresentations of Origen, a subject that I don't remember coming up during the debate itself. Craig is considering writing an article on the subject. Chris Price discussed some of the problems with Carrier's treatment of Origen here.
