Richard Dawkins talks about William Lane Craig (possible debate?)

Richard Dawkins has spoken about William Lane Craig in the following terms.

'One of our commenters on another thread, stevencarrwork, posted a link to this article by the American theologian and Christian apologist William Lane Craig. I read it and found it so dumbfoundingly, staggeringly awful that I wanted to post it again. It is a stunning example of the theological mind at work. And remember, this is NOT an 'extremist', 'fundamentalist', 'picking on the worst case' example. My understanding is that William Lane Craig is a widely respected apologist for the Christian religion.

Read his article and rub your eyes to make sure you are not having a bad dream.'

I don't think those are the words of somebody hoping to debate Craig any time soon.
