In Craig's defense I would like to point out that however

willing to contemplate alternative ideas?
I don't see any alternative idea or theory. When he says that qualia
explains the universe, that fits with the proven consequences of comp,
where quanta are case of qualia. He is not bad at introspection, he
might grasp comp a little bit, but he does not try to submit a theory
in the usual meaning of the terms. So we can't help.
Stephen, don't confuse comp, as used as a "pretext for not addressing
the mind-body problem by materialist", and what we can already see
from a formulation of the mind body problem when computationalism is
taken seriously into account. This already leads to a rational
alternative, if not reversal.
To be frank, you fail also to provide a theory, as your notion of
"Existence" illustrates. Existence of what? You never answered.
My my, are we in a snit of a mood! I am assuming a basic axiom:
Existence exists. If this is difficult for you to grasp, please watch
this lecture on Epistemology:
Some times you might wish to stop thinking like an automaton and
enjoy how other people think. :-)
