As he approaches death, believing in a GOD allows one to "cover his bets". He really doesn't know much about the God of Abraham, although he seems to know something about Allah...

What most scientists forget to remember about science is that there are rules and patterns. Else, why study it if it is completely random? Science is about writing down and understanding what is going on. For everything to be random defeats the purpose of science.

I was thinking the same thing. Being the son of a minister, one wonders just what he was taught about God as a child?

Not really. He doesn't believe in a God who is personally involved in his life and he believes that when you die, that's all there is.
That's hardly a man who has taken Pascal's wager.
The very existence of matter and its conservation is empirical proof that there is a God - which Flew is conceding.
