Thank you to Allan MacNeill for the following announcement:

Sorry about the placement of this, but Will Provine, perhaps the greatest historian of evolutionary biology of the 20th century, has died. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1995, had it surgically removed and underwent chemo and radiation. The tumor returned about four years ago and eventually killed him. Here is a link to his FaceBook page announcing his passing:

Will was an unusually generous, gentle, and kind man. He always invited creationists and ID supporters to his evolution class, and always treated them with the utmost respect. He was a mentor to me and to hundreds of other historians, philosophers, and practitioners of evolutionary biology and population genetics. We will miss him.

    His debates with Phil Johnson in the 1990s offered a rare opportunity to hear the best both sides had to offer. You don’t see that nowadays.

    Sadly, rational atheism died along with him.
