The Herzberg Prize, that is.

Some people that did take to the idea, in a way, were the U.S.-based intelligent design lobby group the Discovery Institute. At one point, the group had posted five papers from Doolittle — more than any scientist — that it claimed questioned Darwin's theory of evolution.

"I ranked No, 1," Doolittle said with a chuckle. "It's clever on their part, but creationists like to take any disagreement within the field of evolution as somehow discrediting the field of evolution as a whole, which it obviously does not do."
