Leading Scientist endorses "Mere Christianity"

Christian Today [sic] reports on a lecture given as part of the C.S. Lewis Foundation's "Oxbridge 2008" conference. The speaker was Francis Collins, director of the National Human Genome Research Institute, and the report appears under the headline: "'Mere Christianity' makes sense, scientist tells CS Lewis Foundation".

But where are reporting standards, one asks oneself! The venue for the lecture is given as "St Aldate's Church, Cambridge". That's just wrong. St Aldates is in Oxford, of course. As was the conference this week. Next week it meets in Cambridge.
