Hi
Let's see...The universe does not know whether it was created by God or not, and only persons with credentials can figure it out.:)

Macula, Did you not read most of my posts on this forum? Now you seem greatly interested in further reading of the works of long-published authors who have not been posting here. How does this happen, considering their opinions are not any better than what were offered here?
Some hints are contained in the excerpt from Macula's post:
Flew first made his mark with the 1950 article "Theology and Falsification," based on a paper for the Oxford Socratic Club, a weekly religious forum led by writer C.S. Lewis. And over the years, he proclaimed the lack of evidence for God while teaching at universities around Britain, in visits to U.S. and Canadian campuses and in books, articles, lectures and debates.

So
1) Flew attended Oxford -- on a merit scholarship, was it?
2) it sounds as if he made a living, in part, by talking about disbelief "God," which like the theologians, he has, like almost everyone else, defined only vaguely in any functional sense... and now his position is reversing after 54 years. I sure hope he posts to this forum .
The good thing for him is they will respect whatever he writes because he is published
by a reputable part of the industry in their view. The bad thing is apparently how few, if any, read my posts so they still don't know much more about this subject than if they had never been to school...or than if they had been to too much school. (ha ha)
Sweetly,
Mike
