On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Granville Sewell about how he came to be a Darwin skeptic and why a mathematician’s view of neo-Darwinian evolution matters. Listen in as Dr. Sewell shares his views and gives advice to students who doubt Darwinism.

Dr. Sewell’s new book, In the Beginning: And Other Essays on Intelligent Design, is published by Discovery Institute Press.

Granville Sewell is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Texas El Paso.
