Following the argument – to God

In 1950, Antony Flew, a brilliant young philosophy student at Oxford University, presented a paper titled ‘Theology and Falsification’. It became the most widely published philosophical paper of the 20th century and Antony Flew went on to became one of the world’s leading atheist thinkers. But in 2004, Flew dropped a bombshell. He published a book titled ‘There is a God – How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind’. He hadn’t had a Damascus Road experience. Referring to his mature reflections on both science and philosophy, he said: ‘I have simply followed the argument where it has led me. And it has led me to accept the existence of a self-existent, immutable, immaterial, omnipotent and omniscient Being.’
Maybe we need to think a bit harder too.
