On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Fellow Paul Nelson and Casey Luskin share memories of the late Will Provine, historian of science and evolutionary biologist at Cornell University. Provine, an evolutionary spokesman, was a longtime interlocutor of intelligent design proponents, who admired him for his willingness to challenge standard evolutionary views and his refreshing ability to express affection for opponents while disagreeing with them.
