Luke Corwin took the stage in April, on Earth Day, at the culmination of the March for Science. That march started at the School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City, where Corwin teaches, and continued to the Central States Fairgrounds.

On the stage there, Corwin called for open and courteous dialog between those who trust in science and those who don't.

During his speech, Corwin said he is a Christian and sometimes struggles with the conflict between his religious and scientific beliefs.

Victoria Wicks heard Corwin's speech and contacted him to ask for a longer examination of that dichotomy.
