Genial or not?

It is often said that there is a thin line between madness and genius. This is true I suppose, and many of the geniuses that have enlightened us have also had eccentricities that have amused us.

So surely, the creationists would cry, the science is wrong. Yet that very science – the ability to measure the speed of light, and distances using it – allows satellites to orbit the Earth and deliver the TV to their living rooms and the calls to their mobile phones.

    Now where’s a creationist to ask – can never find one when you need one…
