Well, good for Grayling and Dennett. Paying the journalists and not the speakers is an astonishing tactic. I hope they reported fully on its implications.

I do worry about refusing to engage with such organisations. One has to balance the (correct) strategy of thereby refusing to give them credibility, with the perception, no doubt encouraged by their propagandists, that we aren't up to the task.

At some point, though, we just have to say that it's not worth the time and effort of otherwise useful and productive scientists.
