*Apologies for the technical difficulties.  The camera was kinder to the Scripps Pier (which is rather lovely) than it was to Bingham or Dawkins.*

Richard Dawkins, an evolutionary theorist who, until his retirement in 2008, was the inaugural holder of the Charles Simonyi Chair in the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University, has popularized the gene-centered view of evolution and theory of memetics. His many books include The Selfish Gene, The Blind Watchmaker, The New York Times best seller The God Delusion, and most recently The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution.
