Overview

Updated in 2013 with new Information. Famed atheist Antony Flew stunned the world with his repudiation of atheism in favor of deism about 2004 but the reasons for his change were unclear.

Overview

Updated in 2013 with new Information. Famed atheist Antony Flew stunned the world with his repudiation of atheism in favor of deism about 2004 but the reasons for his change were unclear. Finally, in 2007, Flew released his book "There Is a God: How the World's Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind in an attempt to set the record straight." It was immediately challenged by hostile atheists on a number of grounds, not all of them very charitable. One of the challenges was put forth most prominently by PZ Myers and Richard Carrier: Flew had lost his mind; the arguments weren't his at all, but rather were the product of manipulating Christian apologists.

"Here’s the smoking gun for anyone who has the courage to follow the evidence where it leads – this time concerning the state of mind of Antony Flew, the atheist apostate who had the courage to do follow the evidence where it led as it pertained to the existence of God."

- Roy Abraham Varghese

There is just one teensy-weensy problem with this line of attack. In 2006, before it was even known to the world that Antony Flew would be releasing a book, a Christian apologist and author by the name of Anthony Horvath (Athanatos Christian Ministries) was in correspondence with Dr. Flew. Horvath wrote Flew specifically to ask him to commit his current positions and arguments to written form because even then there was much speculation. The answer was that the book was already in the works!

The correspondence was brief but turns out to be decisive against those claiming that "There is a God" did not reflect Flew's actual positions. In this e-book, Horvath releases copies of the original letters along with his lengthy rebuttal to Richard Carrier's assertions. To date, though Carrier has been made aware of that rebuttal, no answer has been received. And no wonder: these letters settle the matter once and for all.

For those interested in the best evidence and primary sources in coming to their conclusions, these letters by Flew will be instrumental. It will be clear from the letters that Flew was straightforward about how the book would be authored, how it would be structured, the types of arguments he would use, and even his mental state.

Perhaps once these issues have been settled people can get onto the business they should have been on all along: analyzing the contents of the book and the arguments and evidence that it contains on their own merits.
