Lucrative religious prize won by quantum physicist

This is my favourite story of the day. The fact that a quantum physicist can win the most coveted prize in religion says a lot about the deliriously unstable state of contemporary thought. And the fact that including dr. d'espagnat, five of the past ten templeton winners have been physicists is also deeply suggestive of ... something.

"The world's top prize for religious thought has been won by a physicist - Bernard d’Espagnat - known for his work in quantum theory and perceptions of reality. The US$1.4 million Templeton Prize recognises d’Espagnat's theory that a new 'veiled reality' lurks behind matter and other observable phenomena."
