John Cleese is feeling his way closer to a theistic worldview

John Cleese is feeling his way closer to a theistic worldview July 13, 2019

Fascinating to watch him breaking with the dim shallow atheism of Dawkins and the pop secular left in Britain:

Still plenty for a Catholic to argue with here, of course. But still interesting to watch him feeling his way around the contours of reality in the half-light and work things out.

I once held in my hands C.S. Lewis’ personal copy of Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason and read his marginal scribblings made circa 1924. You could see him doing something similar as he felt and reasoned his way toward the Christian tradition. Very interesting to watch. His account of the process can be read in Surprised by Joy.
