1000 points of light. It takes all kinds of approaches to reach different people. As long as people don't distort the evidence of reality in reaching out to the public then I am fine with all of them. Anything that serves to educate, or produce questioning and interest to look further is good.

My favorite book of Richard's is River Out of Eden. It is the most beautifully concise description of evolution I've ever read, I liked it so much I sent Richard a fan letter when it appeared.
