William Lane Craig and his Scooby Doo God

In the cartoon series , Scooby Doo, the villain would always have succeeded in his plans, if it wasn't for meddling kids.

The famous Christian apologist, William Lane Craig, thinks his God is like a villain in a cartoon series. A few children can easily wreck his plans.

I quote Craig in Slaughter of the Canaanites God knew that if these Canaanite children were allowed to live, they would spell the undoing of Israel. The killing of the Canaanite children not only served to prevent assimilation to Canaanite identity but also served as a shattering, tangible illustration of Israel’s being set exclusively apart for God.

Craig's solution is for his alleged god to have all the children killed.

Then they wouldn't be able to wreck his plans.

No wonder Christians consider William Lane Craig a suitable person to debate Richard Dawkins, Polly Toynbee or Stephen Law. There is no answer to Craig's logic. How can you argue with somebody whose solution to children being in God's way is to kill the children?

Dr Craig obviously knows what God was thinking 3000 years ago. Clearly killing babies is the morally good thing to do, but only relative to possible future events.
