Today programme

Last Friday, the Today programme on Radio 4 came from the Royal Society. Lewis Morgan, speaking with the usual breath-taking naivity of the rationalist said:
'Scientific knowledge is value-free, it has no ethical content.'
Speaking more sense was the Chief Rabbi, Dr Jonathan Sachs on In Search of God:

'Science is good at explaining things, but not so good at explaining people.'
