     I was never one for lectures but Steve Dawkins is entertaining and, as
always, I continue to be impressed by the advances in modern technology that
our grand-daughter takes for granted. To get to the point, if you wish to
sit in on this recent lecture (sound & vision), at the Royal Society in
London, you may do so by going to http://www.royalsoc.ac.uk/
and clicking on ŒWhy Creationism is wrong and Evolution is right¹
    It was given on what was described as an ³inclement² evening and 400
people were turned a way from the door. This, some indication of the current
public interest in this topic in the U.K. Unlike the United States, teaching
in U.K state schools is not ostensibly secular and there are increasing
numbers of ³faith schools²  which  subscribe to the converse of the title of
this lecture and the views expressed by Steve Dawkins. Within the University
of Sheffield you might also find yourself invited to lectures such as.
"Clever People Believe in God" - a talk at
7pm Medical Lecture Theatre 1, Medical School. By Abu Sundus. Where
is the intelligence in atheistic belief when the world is falling apart
around
us?
I  must own up to the fact that I a not a ³clever² person, see no virtue in
Œintelligent design¹ and  would much prefer a purely secular approach to
education.
