Ghoulish Tug-of-War

Interesting NYT article about Antony Flew and 'his' new book, There is a God:

As he himself conceded, he had not written his book.

“This is really Roy [Varghese]’s doing,” he said, before I had even figured out a polite way to ask. “He showed it to me, and I said O.K. I’m too old for this kind of work!”

When I asked Varghese, he freely admitted that the book was his idea and that he had done all the original writing for it.

Hard to say how much bias there is in the reporting, but it certainly reads like a ga-ga octogenarian has been tugged at by both the theists and the atheists, with the theists having the stronger pull.
