H/T Jerry Coyne.
Evolutionary geneticist Francisco Ayala has won the lucrative Templeton Prize. This is not too surprising, at least with the retrospectiscope on. Ayala argues for the Gouldian principle of Non-Overlapping Magisteria, and he has an evolution-based theodicy (a bizarre one, IMHO). He's a good example of somebody who mixes science with theology and argues for the consistency of scientific and religious claims.
A year or two ago I reviewed his book Darwin's Gift to Science and Religion for Cosmos magazine.
