Go Where The Evidence Leads

Antony Flew, the 81-year-old British philosophy professor who taught at Oxford and

other leading universities, became an atheist at age 15. Throughout his long career
he argued-including in debates with an atheist -- turned-Christian named C. S. Lewis
-- that there was a "presumption of atheism," that is, the existence of a creator
could not be proved.

But he's now been forced to face the evidence. It comes from the Intelligent Design
movement, led by Dr. Phillip Johnson and particularly the work of Michael Behe, the
Lehigh biochemist who has proven the "irreducible complexity" of the human cell
structure. Though eighty-one years old, Flew has not let his thinking fossilize, but
has faithfully followed his own dictum to "go where the evidence leads."
