Here at Jammy Toast we love Professor Brian Cox OBE, FRS and all the fantastic television programmes he makes about physics and astronomy – especially the Wonders of… series. He has a way of making everything he talks about clear, precise and even understandable to use non-techies. We have even tried reading a couple of his books, Why Does E=mc2 and The Quantum Universe – neither of which (just like Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time) made a bit of sense to us. So we love Brian but what does Brian think of Jammy Toast? As he works just up the road at the University of Manchester, we thought we would ask

The earth orbits around one star amongst 200 billion in the Milky Way galaxy, itself one of two trillion galaxies in the observable Universe. Life on our planet arose soon after it formed from a cloud of dust and gas orbiting around our young star, and over the next four billion years evolved into the endless forms most beautiful that populate Earth today, including human beings. We humans are the most complex and valuable collections of atoms we know of anywhere in the Universe.

From our origins only 250,000 years ago in the Great Rift Valley of Africa, we have built a civilisation capable of flying rockets to the Moon, composing great symphonies and, Trump permitting, journeying outwards to the stars from which we came.

Language was a key part of the Ascent of Man, and this website is neither a celebration of language nor a valuable contribution to it. It is an insult to 4 billion years of evolution. The singled-celled population of primitive organisms to which we and all living things on the planet are related would have stayed inside the primordial rocky chambers of their hydrothermal vents if they had known that their distant descendants would squander such a timespan on Jammy Toast’s inane twaddle. It makes me ashamed to be a collection of atoms, even though it is a wonderful thing that atoms can be ashamed of themselves.

Best Wishes


Erm… yea, thanks Brian.

  1. Did someone mention the singled-celled population of primitive organisms to which we and all living things on the planet are related would have stayed inside the primordial rocky chambers of their hydrothermal vents?

    If you don’t believe.

  2. Brexit Update: The vote that the government delayed before Christmas because it was going to lose, is going ahead on Tuesday even though the government is going to lose. The opposition says they’ll table a no confidence motion, but nobody’s really confident they’ll win. Clear?
