John Cleese's version of Alvin Plantinga's "Evolutionary Argument Against Naturalism."

Okay, it's not quite that. But Cleese, of Monty Python fame, does a nice, and humorous, job of explaining what happens when one offers a materialist account of everything including a materialist account of how your mind acquired the belief that materialism is the correct view. (To read an outline of Plantinga's argument, go here)

Absolutely brilliant! John Cleese shows the absurdity of reductionism and the fact that everyone regardless of their ultimate philosophy takes certain properly basic presuppositions on faith. (Shades of Cardinal Newman's Grammar of Assent!)

Cleese also did an audiobook reading of The Screwtape Letters that is a tour de force. Get it if you can. His performance is marvelous.
