The Depths To Which Christians Will Go...

Antony Garrard Newton Flew
(11 February 1923 – 8 April 2010)
Antony Flew Considers God...Sort Of:

An exposé of the claim that Anthony Flew recanted his Atheism and converted to Christianity, by Richard Carrier.

Worth the long read to see the depths Christian apologists will go to to keep their market intact and their income stream flowing.

My thanks to @jablomih on Twitter for providing me with the link. In his words, "Can you imagine atheists circling William Lane Craig's deathbed looking for a "conversion"? Or lying & saying he had one?"

  1. As a Christian, I denounce the actions of anyone who would "make up" conversion stories, as if that really helps the cause. The same thing was attempted with Darwin. It's almost as if those "Christians" don't believe in what they profess, that they have to go "recruit" these other people, thinking that lends credence to their belief. I personally find it hypocritical, and really, a deviation from the teachings of Christianity.

    The biggest common complaint against Christians:

    1) They're exclusivist (Christianity teaches only Christianity is true).

    The second biggest complaint:

    2) They're hypocritical (People who call themselves Christians act in a way contrary to their professed beliefs).

    Sadly, some who wish to avoid falling into 1) only end up in 2). I say either be a Christian or don't. But of course, that's only an argument against the people of Christianity, not the teachings themselves.

    "Almost"?...

    If religion is both a) unsupported by evidence and b) does not lead to exclusively ethical behaviour, it is not worth bothering with.

    The religious are too eager to lie in order to impose their fairy tales on the rest of us.

Obscene, threatening or obnoxious messages, preaching, abuse and spam will be removed, as will anything by known Internet trolls and stalkers.

A claim made without evidence can be dismissed without evidence. Remember: your opinion is not an established fact unless corroborated.

Sorry but the spammers are back so I've had to restrict who can post again.
