Via, the famous atheist, Antony Flew, has abandoned atheism and turned to deism. Actually, I've never heard of him, but he does seem to be prominant in atheist circles. As of this moment, he is on the Celebrity Atheist List. He has a bio on that lists him as the author of 24 books, primarily on philosophy. has an article about Antony Flew. It references The Evangelical Outpost which has two posts about it - The Harbinger of "Neism"?: Antony Flew and the Flight From Atheism and Antony Flew and the Flight From Atheism.

He has basically abandoned atheism because of science.

"It has become inordinately difficult even to begin to think about constructing a naturalistic theory of the evolution of that first reproducing organism."

"I think that the most impressive arguments for Godís existence are those that are supported by recent scientific discoveries."

"It now seems to me that the findings of more than fifty years of DNA research have provided materials for a new and enormously powerful argument to design."

An exclusive interview with Flew will be published in the Winter 2004 issue of Philosophia Christi the journal of the Evangelical Philosophical Society.
