God v Darwin v Attenborough…

“They always mean beautiful things like hummingbirds,” Sir David says, “I always reply by saying that I think of a little child in east Africa with a worm burrowing through his eyeball. The worm cannot live in any other way, except by burrowing through eyeballs. I find that hard to reconcile with the notion of a divine and benevolent creator.”

Sir David has a new TV series due to air on the BBC in the UK, celebrating Darwin’s discoveries in this the 200th anniversary of his birth (Darwin, that is not Sir David ;-)
