Dinner with Darwin

The New Humanist asked several scientific commentators what they would talk about with Darwin, provided there was a chance to meet him.

New Humanist: What would he think of the fact that his ideas and personality are under attack from Intelligent Design and creationism?

Steve Jones: He would probably not be interested. At the time his theories were widely accepted – even by the church. What is surprising is the way they have been dis-accepted recently. He’d find the way people argue about him frightfully vulgar.
