Dawkins in a whirl

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

Scenes I wish I'd witnessed #437 in an occasional series – Richard Dawkins demonstrating what a Whirling Dervish does:
In response to a comment by novelist Sophie Kinsella that she had been "rushing around like a Dervish", Richard Dawkins said, "Dervishes don't rush... they whirl." He then rose, outstretched his arms, crouched down and began to spin around at a snail's pace fixing his eye rather hypnotically on Kinsella: "Very slowly, like this."
