    Looks like he didn't understand evolution - or the copious amounts of evidence for it to be found in that very DNA.

    Complexity is a silly reason to conclude that there is a god anyway. It doesn't solve the problem, it makes it worse - it's a step in the wrong direction.

    There does appear to be some debate as to whether Flew was still in possession of all his facilities (source).

    Yes, it is atheist who make the claim, but he was sane and had his wits about him. I think he understood things more than you are me puit together, read his books ;-).

    He was so intelligent, more than me for sure, that he was able to overcome "Confirmation Bias", which is a major problem for us. In anycase, I still state that it is rational to believe in Infinite Intelligence, if you think that is 'silly', I am fine with that..



    Peace

    Tanakh does not deny basic science because it is neither a history book nor a science book. It is a book of moral and ethical teachings, perhaps loosely based on actual events.

    How God Can Be Cognized.
    Autobiography of a Scientist Who Studied God



    Translated from Russian into English
    by Mikhail Nikolenko

    Corrector of an English translation —
    Keenan Murphy

    © Antonov V.V., 2009



    This book is an autobiography of the Russian scientist-biologist, theorist, and practical man, spiritual Master Vladimir Antonov, who is known for dozens of articles and for more than 40 books dedicated to the methodology and methods of spiritual development. The author narrates, among other things, about his studying from Divine Teachers, his mistakes and success in helping people spiritually, about his personal cognition of the multidimensional structure of the Absolute, about cognition of the Creator.

    The author is the founder of a new branch of modern science — Methodology of Spiritual Development.

    The book can be useful for psychologists, physicians, teachers, philosophers, and for all those who walk the spiritual Path or who seek it.
