A Protestant Will Become President of the Papal Academy of Sciences

You are welcome Moneil. Yes, I don't think there is much to get too upset about here. I think it was Pius XI that appointed Alexis Carrel who was as I said agnostic.
Carrel witnessed a miracle at Lourdes which influenced his conversion. We can hope people like Stephen Hawking (also a member of the Academy) have similar experiences. God knows a lot of these people are completely shut off from such things.
This is an interesting article on Carrel, the Nobel laureate who witnessed two miracles at Lourdes:
