....Not sure why but I've had trouble accessing my blog in recent weeks. So I have quite a number of books to review.
The first is a book by the well known British Atheist Antony Flew. At least the blurb says that he is a well known atheist, but I had never heard of him. I guess I haven't been moving in the right/wrong circle. The book: "There is A God". Apparently Antony Flew was the first to come up with a systematic theory of atheism. He tells in this book how he came to change his mind, from atheism to a belief in God, a Creator. He says: "I have followed the argument where it has led me. And it has led me to accept the existence of a self-existent, immutable, immaterial, omnipotent, and omniscient Being." He also says about Christianity that: "If you are wanting omnipotence to set up a religion, it seems to me that this is the one to beat!"
One thing that puzzled him was consciousness: how could matter give birth to consciousness, another was rationality and conceptual thought: "How is it possible to evaluate data at all?"
A good read, which I intend to go back to, if ever I have the time.
