Shaka,

Antony Flew is simply old and scared of dieing. He's reached the age were the fear of no afterlife has scared the crap out of him.


This surely must be a joke.

Mr. Flew maybe 'old', but I see no evidence that he is scared. His mental faculties may be doubtful, but beyond that we can draw no conclusions.
The second part of your quote above puzzles me. Are you suggesting that above a certain 'age' we are going to realize that there is 'no afterlife' and that we will get the 'crap' scared out of us because of that?

What age will that be? Can you be more specific?

Mr. Flew is certainly no 'joke'. Very few humans are. Religious people who think they can get away with exploiting others, may fall in said category though.
