".the founts advice...switch off and enjoy a cup of coffee... "

Well at least its more dignified that putting your fingers in your ears and going la la la la la la la la la la la!

I don't think you've got this technology lark sussed out, Simon. You don't have to turn off your television to make a cup of coffee. Indeed, you can make the cup of coffee in advance of the programme commencing and you can sip it at your leisure whilst watching said programme.

Intelligent, educated, articulate individual with a passion for truth and science. Worth watching.

Definitely more so than some buffoon with a penchant for fairy stories.

Simon get yourself a PVR (Youview, Tivo or Sky+). It will record professor Cox while you are busy and you can delete it later at your leisure.

I might watch (a physicist's take on biology sounds interesting) so thanks for the heads up; as I hardly every watch TV (I record lots on my PVR and then delete it to make space for something else I won't watch) I hadn't seen the adverts on TV for it.

I don't understand your point. Everyone has a view on religion whether they are believers, atheists or agnostics. So in that sense he is no more (or less) biased than anyone else. How exactly could he be unbiased in your eyes?

'Brian Cox

Extract from an interview with Brian Cox in the Telegraph Magazine -

'Cox is an atheist....But he is friends with both the former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams and the Very Rev Victor Stock, the former Dean of Guildford Cathedral, and he does not think that believing in science and believing in God are altogether incompatible.'

Sounds unbiased to me.

If you look at what he is actually quoted as saying, he infers that it is better to come at religion in a less agressive way.
Our quotes differ. Where did you get yours?

Also from the article -
'The scientific way..(as opposed to religion)...is the difference between going outside and seeing a sky full of lights and a sky full of worlds. Once you know it's worlds, everything is different.'

Brian Cox is the new Patrick Moore. His programs have informed our kids and he is intelligent enough to question the theories he elucidates (unlike a majority of atheistic empiricists). I recommend his programs to both theists and atheists, hoodies and vicars...

Thanks, K, for reminding us afresh how careless DB can be.

I guess programmes about physical or mental oddities, sexually frustrated wannabes and celebrity look-a-likes are more popular than factual programmes..

Can I add my thanks also....?

Bellatori says:
Like any sensible atheist he is not a self satisfied, sanctimonious prig but understands that science means questioning including those principles he adheres to as an atheist. It is why I admire Hawking and why also Dawkin let himself down with the polemic 'The God Delusion'. When an atheist gets 'certain' he stops being a scientist.
That is not agnosticism it is a 'proper' questioning scientific attitude.

Do you know, that is about the first nearly sensible thing you have written... and I bet it was totally by accident!?

Spin says:
Bellatori: You are quite correct. "Certainty" is a homocentric concept not adhered to by our most illustrious thinkers. To question science is not, as some on these threads presume, to be a theist, it is simply to demand answers. Science must question science otherwise it is no more than another "Belief"...
