The Wilbur Awards are given annually by the Religion Communicators Council to "individuals in secular media who communicate religious issues, values and themes with the utmost professionalism, fairness and honesty." This year, my recent article in Playboy, "Born Again Scientists," has won the award in the "editorial" category. The piece is about scientists who don't believe in God but still refer to themselves as spiritual. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any official version of the article on the web that I can share with you. I'll see about whether I can post it here. I'm honored to be recognized, though I can't attend the awards ceremony in Little Rock next month. I've just recorded an acceptance video and will see about posting that online.
