Listen: Paul Nelson Remembers Paleontologist David Raup (1933-2015)


On a new episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with Center for Science & Culture Fellow Paul Nelson, sharing memories of the late David Raup, influential invertebrate paleontologist at the University of Chicago.


Nelson discusses Raup’s early participation in the ID movement at the Pajaro Dunes meeting, his realism about the scientific community’s attitude toward skeptics on evolution, and his courage in engaging in thoughtful discussion with those of differing viewpoints.
