A Defense of Antony Flew’s “There is a God” from his Own Letters

 A Defense of the Integrity of Antony Flew’s “There is a God” From His Own Letters

On Kindle  |  On the Nook

The back story in brief:  Several years ago, word came out that Antony Flew had rejected his atheism.  What he accepted was in doubt and in dispute.  We were told that his new introduction to God and Philosophy would set the record straight but it did anything but.  In a conversation with Dr. Gary Habermas, I asked him about it, and was informed that basically, Flew was very disappointed with that introduction and had wanted to say something … continue reading...

The Silence of the Wolves: Atheists Turn Docile in Face of the Facts

It is not so common in philosophical debates to arrive at points of contentions where there really, truly, is indisputable refutation or demonstration.  Usually, it is a question of interpretation and the argument can continue on.  On my blog I have documented over the years a few points where the argument against the atheist was incontrovertible.  The result:  silence.

I would like to give free-thinking objective and even handed and mentally superior atheistic friends an opportunity to exhibit integrity by highlighting the three examples (plus a bonus one) that come to mind and calling upon the atheists and their defenders … continue reading...

In Defense of Antony Flew’s Positions Against Richard Carrier’s Slanderous Chutzpah

The letters I received from Flew that I discuss below have been released in an ebook.  This ebook contains this essay as well as a few other remarks looking back on this tempest in a teapot.  You may buy this ebook using the links on this page (Kindle, etc.)  To my knowledge, Richard Carrier has yet to respond to this, except to dismiss it.  Bless him.

“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

Antony Flew Under Attack by Atheists

This has been the case for awhile, now, but atheists all over are not giving Flew his due.  This site has a great list of taunts.

  • He’s losing/lost his mind.
  • He’s in it for the money.
  • He’s afraid of death.
  • Etc.

If this is not ad hominem, I don’t know what is.  If the challenge is that Flew hasn’t well defended himself, I could almost see it… thus the book… which hasn’t come out yet…. which, therefore, they can’t evaluate…. which means that at this point, they’re just being presumptive.  We have yet to see if his book provides good … continue reading...

A kick in the shins of Christian ‘Internet Bloggers’ too

As I referenced in my review (located here) of Strobel’s book ‘The Case for the Real Jesus” I found it ironic that Internet writers and popular audience writers would be speared in a book written by a journalist and written for a popular audience. I assume that since Strobel is specifically seeking out scholars that he feels that the book is in a different class even if it was written for a popular audience. That is probably a valid point.

There are a couple of issues I need to raise here. From the perspective of a Christian apologist that … continue reading...
