    Arthur C Clarke.... Does he really exist? Despite the over imaginative hype of the promos, Basically each episode involved him saying at the end, "Nah..there's no mystery really, there's nothing in it" But "Arthur C Clarke's Mundane World" doesn't quite have the same...

    Every so often the tedious self indulgent self styled "stelarc" comes up with some underwhelming attempt to mix man and machine, or in this case, flesh and more flesh, adding little to art or science. Expect another headline making gimmick in a few more years time.

    Never implied he wasn't a "proper atheist" - whatever that is - same as a "true scotsman" I suppose. Can an atheist not do something "unrehearsed and spontaneous" or remotely amusing ? Do you really have no sense of irony?
