Someone on my facebook posted this. I went to the site but its a hideous mess and hard to see what is going on there. Though it is playing Ennio Morricone so I kept the tab open.

Heard this advertised earlier, checked out site and pods, zero science on offer, even in the page samples. Nor is May (author) a scientist himself.

I really hope the part about the Minister turning up is bollocks.

A publicity stunt on behalf of the publishers perhaps?

You can also bet that that e10,000 won't be given out in a raffle. I imagine it'll be on offer to anyone who can prove evolution or something...

maybe so, I would be surprised if he did make an appearance at this kind of bash.

For a minute there I thought Conor Lenihan wrote it! Although launching it isn't much better.

Where is Buswells hotel?

Nope, he's launching it; I rang Lenihan's office and it was confirmed. When I asked did not having a Minister for Science launch an anti-science book give it credence, I was told that just because he was launching it did not mean he agreed with it, which obviously wasn't the question I asked.

This is purely an attempt to try to get book publicity by sparking controversy. Ignore and stop discussing it.

While that might be true, I think it's ridiculous that the minister is going.

I'm going to let him know, too.
