Many British people as stupid as Americans. I watched the program last night with some dismay, but then Horizon stopped being a science program years ago (I think it devoted an edition to the Bible Code for goodness sake). I sort of agree with Richard Dawkins that scientists should refuse to debate with Creationists or Intelligent Design pushers, they'll get as much from scientists refusing to engage as they would from scientists giving up their time to talk to people who's opinions won't be changed, even when the fallacies and mistakes in their 'evidence' is exposed. It's lose-lose either way but at least then the scientists can get some work done.
