← Correspondence regarding the Templeton Foundation

It wasn't so long ago that Templeton sponsored endeavours were considered legit by some scientists, and maybe still considered at least semi-legit by some.
I remember at one of the Beyond Belief conferences the astrophysicist Sean Carroll had to chide some of his peers for taking Templeton money to fund research.
That was a few years ago but I'm guessing the argument as to the legitimacy of Templeton sponsored events is still ongoing. I suppose it shows what shape some scientists will contort themselves into to get a little funding.
