Now, for something very wonderful

A Polish born priest named Michael Heller has won the Templeton Prize. Endowed by Sir John Templeton, the money is given to a person who advances the dialogue between religion and science. Read about Fr. Heller in the Christian Science Monitor article linked above.

He sounds like a wonderful man-modest, self-critical, and bright as all get out.

Anyone who seeks to build bridges like this, instead of blowing them up, has my respect. It seems so challenging to be constructive in an academic arena in which you garner publicity by creating controversy.

Can a balding priest in his 70's be a sex symbol? Let's nominate this professor at Krakow's Pontifical Academy as one of the beautiful people of 2008.
