Search for the Truth brings famous atheist to Faith in God

"One was my growing empathy with the insight of Einstein and other noted scientists that there had to be an Intelligence behind the integrated complexity of the physical Universe. The second was my own insight that the integrated complexity of life itself - which is far more complex than the physical Universe - can only be explained in terms of an Intelligent Source."
Flew described the deity he believes in as "the god of Aristotle," not quite the personal God of Christianity and Judaism, "a person but not the sort of person with whom you can have a talk. It is the ultimate being, the Creator of the Universe." He said he does not "accept any claim of divine revelation" but is continuing to study them, particularly those of Christianity.

This is a classic case of seeing a design in the universe which points to a designer. HBO just aired a documentary which mocks this viewpoint, and refers to the Discovery Institute which advances this discussion as a dangerous agent of manipulation of our faith in Darwin. How medieval of them to fear an honest discussion on a 150 year old theory which is getting so rickety, that it no longer works without strict adherence!
I have heard it said that it takes more faith t0 believe in Darwinism than to believe that God created the universe. Michael Behe, a Professor of Biophysics at Lehigh University, in his book "Darwin's Black Box" debunks the theory in one simple example; the flagellum of a microorganism. This propelling tail will not work until every single cell is perfectly in line. Without it the organism can't find food, and wouldn't survive. According to the theory of evolution, this organism developed by trial and error into what it is, which means that for thousands of years, it would have to survive and reproduce without the tail. This is clearly impossible. This theory of irreducable complexity proposed by "Darwin's Black Box", has been described as, "the straw that broke the camel's back" or the end to the theory of evolution, IF evolutionists will stop hiding from it.
A true scientist would not fear entering into a debate like this, but according to the HBO special, evolutionary scientists are 'bad communicators who don't want to be bothered debating this issue with laymen who propose the theory of Intelligent Design. Especially not when they see what happens when scientists like Anthony Flew are open to the truth.
