Now this is worth reading. Inevitably (and both understandably and quite correctly) there is a deluge of Darwin and Origin related stuff heading our way this year, and I do fear that the good will likely be swamped by the mediocre in the media as everyone jumps on the bandwagon desperate to have a say, make a sale, join in and not be seen to be missing out. However, there will of course always be room for important, intelligent, informed, interesting and articulate people to use the opportunity when it comes to say interesting, intelligent, informed and important things in an articualte way.
David Attenborough is one of those people and in The Times, he speaks out (something of a rarity in itself) on his work as a presenter and Darwin’s legacy as well as evolution and creation. Go and read the words of one of the UK’s best loved personalities and someone who has both the standing and respect to make a difference, and I’m delighted to see him doing so.
