RIP Antony Flew
Noted atheist-turned-theist Antony Flew dead at 87.
His conversion was somewhat controversial, as is his book, There Is a God: How the World's Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind. Richard Carrier certainly thinks so.
I read his book and enjoyed it for what it is, a rather subjective work about a man's eventual coming to faith after a lifetime of pondering. With him it was mostly a form of the argument from design, but as with most people, there's more to it than that. It's well worth following his trains of thought.
I also enjoyed reading the internet hysteria over his conversion. Just follow the links and google away. Is a man's death worth a few googles?
Either way, you know the truth now, old dude. Be seeing you.
