Fair warning to the regular readership. Typically I like to cover intelligent design and evolution-related issues, but I trust I may be permitted a bit of a detour.

The Times staff want it both ways: To portray evangelicals as happy clappy idiots and then make nice later. Never under any circumstances to ask whether they could be right about something *on the evidence.*

… who advocates a cosmological rethink of religion (which is good because she, unlike some, does not pretend that this is just another flavour of the same brand)
