Flew was not a scientist. He may have had some fanciful interpretion of science -- misinterpretation, more likely. But the scientific method per se eschews faith as a valid means of cognition, i.e. recognising reality. I find it interesting (and revealing) that Flew AFAIK has not addressed the issue of faith in his new world-view.
Intelligeant Design proponents puzzle me. Thousands of species have gone extinct over the millennia. Entire galaxies have collided destructively. There are continually earthquakes and other natural calamities. The planet Earth evidently was designed not too intelligently. Not to mention homo sapiens with all his defects and vestigial organs.
Never said he was. He's a philosopher with a keen interest in science, specifically the origin of life.

Your lack of a spell checker puzzles me.
If you are going to use scientific methodology, do so.
Formulate explicit predictions and do what you can to test them under controlled conditions.
