Elaine Morgan and Science

I don't know if Elaine Morgan is right, but the octogenarian scientist is funny, shrewd and an accomplished show-woman. At the end of her presentation she gives Richard Dawkins a hard time. But, afterall, he deserved it. And I thank professor Philip Conrad Scott having introduced me to this lovely lady from science.

Ecce Homo - Behold the Man!

Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga (Lisboa, Portugal)

"Then therefore, Pilate took Jesus, and scourged him. And the soldiers platting a crown of thorns, put it upon his head; and they put on him a purple garment. And they came to him, and said: "Hail, king of the Jews"; and they gave him blows. Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith to them: "Behold, I bring him forth unto you, that you may know that I find no cause in him." (Jesus therefore came forth, bearing the crown of thorns and the purple garment.) And he saith to them: "Behold the Man." When the chief priests, therefore, and the servants, had seen him, they cried out, saying: "Crucify him, crucify him." (Gospel According to St. John 19:1-6a, DRB)
