Recently, physical biochemist Arthur Peacocke was selected as the winner of the 2001 Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion. The only Oxford University theology faculty member to be both a Doctor of Science and a Doctor of Divinity, Peacocke founded the Society of Ordained Scientists in 1986. He believes that both science and theology have a part in depicting reality.

In response to the award, Peacocke said: "The search for intelligibility that characterizes science and the search for meaning that characterizes religion are two necessary intertwined strands of the human enterprise and are not opposed. They are essential to each other, complementary yet distinct and strongly interacting—indeed just like the two helical strands of DNA itself!"
