I greatly admire Brian Cox's programmes and the unmistakeable passion and reverence he shows for the mystery of the universe. He is no theist: but about a month ago an interview with The Telegraph got me thinking. I posted this link in Twitter and am reproducing it here for those who may care to follow it up. This chimes in with some of the new thinking I read about over evolutionary theory - particularly epigenetics and how environment and nurture (and not just DNA) are passed on and evolution is not just by random mutations. See what you think.
