"A pilgrimage of reason"

From Thinking Christian, some brief quotations and comment on a very interesting interview with Antony Flew - once perhaps the world's best-known atheist. An atheist no longer, neither is he a Christian - but he is at least considering the possibility.
Among other things, Flew, the distinguished, formerly formidable foe of all belief in God, now says,
I think the origins of the laws of nature and of life and the Universe point clearly to an intelligent Source. The burden of proof is on those who argue to the contrary.
For much of the 20th century, Flew was regarded as one of the most important philosophical spokespersons for atheism. He recently converted to a deistic form of belief in God, and continues to investigate various forms of theism, including Christianity.
I must say...that the journey to my discovery of the Divine has thus far been a pilgrimage of reason. I have followed the argument where it has led me."
Antony Flew: Converted Atheistic Philosopher
