dumb and erm, cleverer

There was a brief bit on the Radio 4 6pm news bulletin this evening about the compatibility of science and religion - they'd wheeled out the usual twittering tweedy vicar type to claim they were totally OK with each other and everyone should just get along and be nice and not rock the boat. Putting the case for reality was none other than our old mate Professor Steve Jones whose position on the subject I expressed some concern about the other day. However, in this particular instance he took a commendably robust and no-nonsense line, dismissing religion as irrelevant "froth" at best, and more often actively malignant and harmful to scientific endeavour. So I think we can all agree with Harry that he's TOTALLY REDEEMED HIMSELF.
