Antony Flew may have found Thomas Jefferson's god
The good news is that AP's headline-writer appears to endorse some form of naturalized epistemology. Actually, that's bad news because the headline is misleading. As misleading as saying that Flew now believes in God because DNA is really complicated.
Richard Carrier of Secular Web was skeptical, so he contacted Flew personally. Flew says he has provisionally accepted a hyper-intelligence as the best explanation for complex life on earth. Carrier writes:
Flew's tentative, mechanistic Deism is not based on any logical proofs, but solely on physical, scientific evidence, or the lack thereof, and is therefore subject to change with more information--and he confesses he has not been able to keep up with the relevant literature in science and theology, which means we should no longer treat him as an expert on this subject (as Moreland apparently did).
Interested readers should ignore the sensational AP report and go directly to Carrier's discussion, in which includes direct quotes from the Carrier/Flew correspondence.
