'The ethics of mixing science and religion' (New Scientist Short Sharp Science Blog)

Amanda Gefter asks an interesting question in her blog for New Scientist: ’Would you take $1.6 million from an organisation whose motives you didn’t agree with?’ Entitled, The ethics of mixing science and religion, she discusses the nature of the Templeton Prize and whether it is justifiable that scientists accept money when they may not necessarily agree with the agenda of the Templeton Foundation. It’s worth a read -- brief but thought-provoking.
