Richard Dawkins

Evolutionary biologist and author Richard Dawkins is one of the most recognizable faces in science today. He first caught the public eye in 1976 with his book The Selfish Gene, which popularized the gene-centered view of evolution (and also introduced the term 'meme'.) Dawkins is also a tireless critic of those skeptical of evolution and science in general, and through lectures, books and popular BBC specials, he has spoken about the crucial need for critical thought and scientific inquiry in our day and age.

"The essence of life is statistical improbability on a colossal scale."
