I’m sure I’m not the first to notice what a skimpy web page scientist/popularizer Richard Dawkins offers.

He basically passes the buck off to one of his enthusiastic fans here. Doesn’t even provide an email address.

Rather a shame. I like a lot of Dawkins’ work, however shrill he can be when he gets a bee in his bonnet about “creationists.”

But I’ve noticed that most working scientists are much more approachable by email than celebrity science authors. Physicists and astronomers are wonderfully approachable. They are almost all much more pressed and busy than most authors, and yet they find the time to answer intelligent questions.
