I failed to get in to Steve Jones’s lecture at the Royal Society last night. Unfortunately, I didn’t fail to get in until I had been standing in the rain for over half an hour. Apparently there was room for 500 people in the hall and I estimate that at least 200 were turned away. It’s heartening that so many people were interested in the lecture, but I wonder if many of the people there were creationists turning up to argue with the sane people. There are certainly a lot of them on the discussion board.
If anyone was there or has pointers to any reports of the evening then I’d love to hear from you.
Update: Looks like the lecture is available online. I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet.
