There Is a God: How the World's Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind

Anthony Flew, at one stage one of the world leading Athiests. Who then went and changed his mind has died. From Christinity today

Flew died, apparently still a deist, April 8. As he told Christianity Today in 2005, he hoped that would be the end of it. “I don't want a future life,” he said. “I have never wanted a future life.”
I still have his book on the to read list....

Again from Christinity Today, a women was awarded damages after been slain in the 'spirit' and injured.

Dadd, who is in her 50s, sued the church and its pastor after she was injured while "slain in the Spirit" - falling backward after being "overcome by the Spirit of the Lord" - during a rally at Mount Hope Church in Delta Township in 2002.
Dadd claimed Pastor Dave Williams defamed her when he accused her of insurance fraud, faking her injuries and renouncing her faith. A jury awarded her more than $317,000 damages for her injuries, as well as libel, slander and false light in a 2007 trial.

I always thought this would happen at some stage. It is a rather silly practice.
