Professor Antony Flew dies at 87
Roy Varghese has just notified me of the death of Professor emeritus Antony Flew, the rationalist philosopher who died on April 8 aged 87, spent much of his life denying the existence of God until, in 2004, he dramatically changed his mind.
Here is Britain’s Telegraph’s obituary.
I feel lonely now. I remember sitting in the window seat at the U rez in about 1968, studying Flew. He really made people think.
Varghese is kind enough to thank me for contributions I have made to the discussion - essentially defending Flew.
For the record, here are some of them:
Flew calls Dawkins a bigot - and I would say he has a pretty good case. On that point, also here.
