Flew (11 February 1923 - 8 April 2010) was a British philosopher.
Belonging to the analytic and evidentialist schools of thought, he
was notable for his works on the philosophy of religion. Flew was a
strong advocate of atheism, arguing that one should presuppose
atheism until empirical evidence of a God surfaces. He also
criticised the idea of life after death, the free will defence to
the problem of evil, and the meaningfulness of the concept of God.
However, in 2004 he stated an allegiance to deism, and later wrote
the book There is a God: How the World's Most Notorious Atheist
Changed His Mind, with contributions from Roy Abraham Varghese.
This book has been the subject of controversy, following an article
in the New York Times magazine alleging that Flew had mentally
declined, and that Varghese was the primary author. The matter
remains contentious, with some commentators including PZ Myers and
Richard Carrier supporting the allegations, and others- including
Flew himself-opposing them.
