The trouble with Richard Dawkins' book, The God Delusion, is that he's guilty of a serious crime for a good scientist - cherry picking data to support an argument. Only it's not the scientific data - he's way too good for that - but the historical data where he lets himself down. Nonetheless it's a fine book.

His next project, Enemies of Reason, begins next week on Channel 4. He'll be tearing all my favourites to shreds - Astrology, Homeopathy, Clairvoyancy and the rest. Looking forward to it.

As an aside there's an article about the good, the bad and the ugly that is Channel 4 in Prospect this month
