Yes, lol mahmood. It's because Anthony Flew is going senile; he's in his dotage. It's quite sad and not really a laughing matter, but one has to wonder why he's not a little more docile. Most people become relatively munificent when they start to lose their minds; not Flew - he's become a raging lunatic.

Maybe a Sky God-lover spiked his Jesus Juice.

Deserter - you have to recall that Flew is a deist and Einstein found the idea of a personal god to be infantile. Einstein also said that he didn't like atheists quote-mining him either:

"In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views."


As far as I can understand, he's a pantheist, but some people might mistake his belief for deism if they know nothing about him.

He also said
You may call me an agnostic, but I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist whose fervor is mostly due to a painful act of liberation from the fetters of religious indoctrination received in youth."


That last quote always cracks me up :D
