Another new discovery: the God gene

In another exiting discovery for human knowledge, John Cleese has discovered the "God gene", which gives people the need to believe in God.

H/T Stephen Cook.
C. S. Lewis was making this argument back in the middle of last century; reductive naturalism explains away not only God but also the very rationality which would support reductive naturalism.

Makes perfect sense to me. I wish Mr Cleese had been my school science teacher.

Touché.

Alvin Plantinga's stuff on Evolution and Naturalism is also very good if you want a tight analytical discussion of this kind of stuff.

But who wants a tight analytical discussion when Dr Cleese has already so thoroughly demonstrated his position?
