Some lucky accommodationist is going to pocket one million pounds next week—on Wednesday, when the 2011 Templeton Prize is announced. Templeton’s blurb states that the prize will be announced at 11 a.m. London time on April 6. And it will be given by none other than Prince Philip, in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace (oh, how that money corrupts everyone). Given that the award will be made in London, its recipient may well hail from the UK. (Last year’s prize, given to California evolutionist Francisco Ayala, was announced at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D. C.)
We’ve already had a bunch of guesses for the prize in a previous post, but in light of this new information, feel free to guess here as well.
