    Sorry - I was a biologist in a former existence. Old habits die hard!
    Blog? What blog...?


      Very good episode of Robert Winston's religious programme earlier on in the week. He himself is a religious fellow but was completely dismayed by the attitude of the fundamentalist Christians he interviewed whose sole purpose seemed to be to rubbish all of the scientific advances of the last 500 years.

      His nice summing up: "surely the meaning of faith is that it is 'in spite of' rather than 'because of'".
