I finally had the chance to watch the 2007 debate between James Crossley and William Lane Craig. Here is my caricature summary.
Question: Is it historically plausible that Peter Pan took the children to Neverland? Professor Craig begins with evidence for the affirmative.
Craig: (Primly dressed in a suit.) There are four pieces of historical evidence.
1) The window was open.
2) The children were not in their beds.
3) The journey was multiply attested by three independent witnesses: Wendy, John, and Michael.
4) This event is continually reported. It was even made into a movie.
Supporting evidence #1: It is especially significant that Peter's favorite is Wendy. Why would the author rely upon a girl as the main witness when girls were notoriously known as nasty little fibbers in Victorian England? Evidence, certainly, for the historicity of the narrative.
Supporting evidence #2: While some of the details of the battle between Pan and Hook may have been embellished, scholars can nevertheless trust that the children were taken to Neverland; there was indeed a battle, and Pan was victorious.
Crossley: (No tie. Shirt untucked.) Only Pansians are blind to the obvious. It is a story.
Craig: Professor Crossley has failed to address the evidence. The window was open, the children were not in their beds....
Crossley: Are you kidding me?
Craig: Crossley is a naturalist.
Crossley: Why am I here?
