I was wondering if his reasoning is sound. If so, should people stop asking the "who designed the designer" question?

    William Lane Craig's reasoning is not sound, for the very reason that he is proposing that we limit the extent of our reasoning. The best explanation is always reasonable, not necessarily idealistic.
