On this episode of ID The Future, two men influenced by Phillip Johnson’s 1991 book Darwin on Trial pay tribute. At a recent event celebrating Johnson’s impact, biologist and professor Dr. Paul Nelson says “the strongest cultural influence that the intelligent design community has had has been through its books – they change lives.”

Dr. Jonathan Wells, a cell and developmental biologist, credits Johnson with convincing him that the evidence for common ancestry, a pillar of Darwinian evolution, was so thin it was simply “applied materialistic philosophy.”

For more on Phillip Johnson’s work, including biography, videos, and articles, visit the new website darwinontrial.com.
