Francis Crick is ailing (and heading towards age 90), but still bristling:
"The view of ourselves as `persons' is just as erroneous as the view that
the Sun goes around the Earth," he said. He predicted that "this sort of
language will disappear in a few hundred years."
"In the fullness of time," he continued, "educated people will believe there
is no soul independent of the body, and hence no life after death."
Hmmm, the ... "educated"? Don't the "educated" already know this?
