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.
From bowsing that site
Conor Lenihan is going be at the launch of this garbage? Really?
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?
I went to a talk on the great o'neil which featured conor lenihan last week. he came accross as...a bit dim. so im not really suprised/
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.
I'm going to let him know, too.
