He’s not shy about sharing his opinion with 5 million social media followers so Ricky Gervais was happy to clear a few things up for us too.

Antony Flew in his book THERE IS A GOD talks about his “notoriety” as an atheist! Below are from pages 4 and 5:

Perhaps something should be said about my “notori-
ety” as an atheist, which is referenced in the subtitle. The
first of my antitheological works was my 1950
paper “Theology and Falsification.” That paper was later reprinted in
New Essays in Philosophical Theology (1955), an anthology
I coedited with Alasdair MacIntyre.New Essays was an
attempt to gauge the impact on theological topics of what
was then called the “revolution in philosophy.” The next
major work was God and Philosophy, first published in
1966 and reissued in 1975,1984, and 2005. In his introduction to
the 2005 edition, Paul Kurtz, one of the leading atheists of
our age and author of the “Humanist Manifesto II,” wrote
that “Prometheus Books is delighted to present what by
now has become a classic in the philosophy of religion.”
God and Philosophy was followed in 1976 by The Presump-
tion of Atheism,which was published as God, Freedom and
Immortality in the United States in 1984. Other relevant
works were Hume’s Philosophy of Belief and Logic and Lan-
guage (first and second series), An Introduction to Western
Philosophy: Ideas and Arguments from Plato to Sartre, Dar-
winian Evolution, and The Logic of Mortality.
It is paradoxical indeed that my first published argu-
ment for atheism was originally presented at a forum pre-
sided over by the greatest Chris tian apologist of the last
century—the Socratic Club chaired by C. S. Lewis. Yet
another paradox is the fact that my father was one of the
leading Methodist writers and preachers in England. More-
over, at the start of my career, I had no particular interest
in becoming a professional philosopher.
Since, notoriously, all good things, if not all things with-
out exception, must come to an end, I will end my intro-
ductory words here. I leave it to readers to decide what to
make of my reasons for changing my mind on the question
of God.
