Niall Shanks dies

Glenn Branch of NCSE tells us, unhappily,

Sad news from Kansas: Niall Shanks, whom many of us knew and whose God, the Devil, and Darwin all of us should know, died in July; he was only 52.

I never met Professor Shanks, but he contributed a chapter to Why Intelligent Design Fails, and I found him a pleasure to work with. I am saddened by the news. You may see NCSE’s obituary here.
