It took this father of atheism a lifetime to work out that if things are made, there must be a Maker. With due respect, it really is the ultimate "duh." Obviously, as death came close and as the ability to enjoy the life that godlessness offers, Anthony Flew was able to use his God-given brain for the first time with this issue, and figured it out.
"Flew's volte-face on the existence of God was all the more remarkable given the volume of his writing in the atheistic cause and his vehement denial of internet rumors in 2001 that he had renounced his atheism. His response was entitled Sorry To Disappoint, but I'm Still an Atheist! In 2007, however, he was able to publish There is a God: How the World's Most Notorious Atheist Changed his Mind."
He changed his mind, because he thought.
Younger atheists fight such common-sense thinking, tooth and nail. For them, the foolishness of atheism is a hill to die on, because it gives temporary license to the pleasures of fornication, pornography, adultery, homosexuality, etc. This is why so many professing atheists embrace as a drowning man the unscientific, unprovable, unthinking, theory tale of evolution. For them, it fills the gap for their purposeless existence.
Yet, tragically, Anthony Flew didn’t publically embrace the Savior. He simply acknowledged how wrong he had been for 50 years; something for which he should be greatly admired. Take his advice. Look around. Open your eyes. Think. Change your mind.
