Editor’s Note: Dr. Philip Skell sadly passed away on November 21, 2010 at the age of 91. Casey Luskin wrote an obituary in his honor at Evolution News & Views. In 2007, Dr. Skell had kindly agreed to participate in a series of interviews, which we are pleased to share with IDTF followers once again.
In this ID the Future podcast, Casey Luskin interviews Philip S. Skell, former Emeritus Evan Pugh Professor at Pennsylvania State University and member of the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Skell discusses his research, which has included work on reactive intermediates in chemistry, free-atom reactions, and reactions of free carbonium ions.
Dr. Skell was a signer of Discovery Institute’s “Dissent from Darwinism” list, and he was the author of “Why Do We Invoke Darwin?: Evolutionary theory contributes little to experimental biology.”
