Comment 1 by genesis1 :

The professor's dislike of faith schools seems a little hypocritical. After all in his book Climbing Mt Improbable he mentions that he once asked his young daughter (I think she was his daughter) as to why flowers existed. She replied (quite correctly) "to make the world pretty".

What? Are you serious? The question was why do flowers exist, not "What's a purely subjective side-effect of the existence of flowers?"
