Dr. Tour is one of the world’s top synthetic organic chemists. He has authored 680 scientific publications and holds more than 120 patents (here is a partial list). In 2014, Thomson Reuters named him one of “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds,” and in 2018 Clarivate Analytics recognized him as one of the world’s most highly cited researchers. Tour is also fearless. He joined more than a thousand other scientists in signing the “Scientific Dissent from Darwinism.” More recently, he has become a thorn in the side of the origin of life research community, offering blunt assessments of the current state of origin of life research. Read more on this controversy here.
UPDATE: This lecture hit a nerve. Read Prof. Tour’s response to his critics. Tour in his response apologizes for using the word “lying” with regard to Jack Szostak, but he goes on to explain in detail why his substantive criticisms of Szostak’s article were correct.
