    Famous Atheist Now Believes in God

    A British philosophy professor who has been a leading champion of atheism for more than a half-century has changed his mind. He now believes in God more or less based on scientific evidence, and says so on a video released Thursday.



    At age 81, after decades of insisting belief is a mistake, Antony Flew has concluded that some sort of intelligence or first cause must have created the universe. A super-intelligence is the only good explanation for the origin of life and the complexity of nature, Flew said in a telephone interview from England. ......http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...ieving_atheist

    The saints are the sinners who keep trying...

    LEX!!! You're a sweetie. I think it'd be a lot more than pancakes to change an athiest.

    Either way, I believe everyone has the right to believe or not believe whatever they wish. I knew of one guy who changed his mind because of an orange. Strange, I know. But after contemplating how complex an orange was with it's protective skin and seeds inside to create more, he had a epiphany.
