A.N. Wilson; Believer
For years, many atheists relied on the standing of philosophers such as Antony Flew and noted writer and biographer A.N. Wilson, who frequently and deeply engaged their intellectual peers in the press and academy, to give atheism the spine and spirit it needed raise it from the level of mere conviction it gained in the mid-20th Century. Both are now theist and monotheist respectively. And both are british! I've always said 'God put the British on an island for a reason"...though I never intimated what many reasons could have justified it...Now among the ranks of the very British religious apologists they formerly critiqued - hopefully still doing so - but now as peers. Amazing.
