We’re All Doomed…

Nine months ago I reported on a survey finding that seemed to indicate that Americans were switching off their intelligence in large numbers. Alas, it appears as though the brain-eating virus has crossed the pond and is munching its way through good British brains. I despair. Interestingly, it appears as though even this story has evolved in the course of a single day. This morning, it started off by claiming that the over-55’s were "more likely to believe in evolution". Now it says that they are less likely to believe. The evidence is here.
I shall watch the Horizon programme, referred to in this story,¬†with some trepidation. Horizon, while still touted by the BBC as its "flagship science programme", has in recent years shown alarming signs of being taken over by programme-makers who wouldn’t know good science if it hit them in the face. There have been some really bad Horizon prgrammes in the past few years, to the extent where I seriously question whether the BBC knows what "flagship" means any more. I’ll report back.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
