Anthony Flew had been one of the most influential philosophical atheists before the publication of his recent book, There is a God: How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind. Flew has come under heavy criticism for this book, and Richard Dawkins was very vocal about it. Now Flew has responded. He says,
“An academic attacking some ideological position which s/he believes to be mistaken must of course attack that position in its strongest form. This Dawkins does not do in the case of Einstein and his failure is the crucial index of his insincerity of academic purpose and therefore warrants me in charging him with having become, what he has probably believed to be an impossibility, a secularist bigot.”
