At 81 you may want to start making plans for the next step.
At 81, he is in the foxhole now. Kinda sad, but reality.
My grandfather was a self-professed Atheist all his life. Until his death at 101. Or rather, until right before his death when he changed his mind.
I sure hope this thread attracts the Fr-atheists, I'm waiting for their responses.
I'm praying they respond. ;-)
101! wow, talk about waiting till the last minute.

That was my thought...He jumped the fence none too soon.
One Flew, out of the "cuckoo's nest"...
"It has become inordinately difficult even to begin to think about constructing a naturalistic theory of the evolution of that first reproducing organism,"
200 years ago there was no better explanation for how man came to be than the 6 day story of creation. By today's standards, that assumption is ridiculous, in time, Flew's statement above will be too.
"He sounds like a Unitarian."
Indeed he does. I like to call Unitarians "Nothingtarians."
Because it their attempt to embrace everything some, they actually embrace nothing at all. Unitarians are just religious humanists. It is a warm and fuzzy group, that want "religon" but not anything that would make demands on them. IMHO!
Please, anyone who fights against the teaching of evolution in public schools, please read and understand this line.
Creationist ideas and the new "intelligent design" fad are not science. Doesn't mean they're not right, just that they make no testable predictions. More importantly, they do not conflict in any way with the concepts and teaching of evolution, which does not, despite many people's conception of it, claim any starting point or origin of life. Darwinian evolution merely describes how organisms change, not how they began. Plus, added bonus, it is scientific, which means it makes predictions about the fossil record that can then be proved or disproved. Please don't muddle the scientific education of our children with things that are not science.
Sorry to rant, but I've been distressed by the number of stories in the news lately about "evolution vs. ", when there is in fact to conflict there to speak of.
Flew evolved from ignorant "atheist" to idiotic "deist."
It's amazing how many so-called "intellectuals" run a deficit when it comes to adding 2+2 or common sense.
