 Stephen Jay Gould - (1941 - 2002)
Gould, along with Niles Eldredge, a paleontologist at the New York's Museum of Natural History, developed an evolutionary theory called "punctuated equilibrium," where long periods of evolutionary stability are broken by shorter spurts of evolutionary change, perhaps sparked by external events such as climate change or the impact of a comet.
He has published many volumes of books as well as hundreds of essays in national newspapers and magazines on any of a host of scientific topics.
It is an idea of science, not of belief, and therefore undergoes constant scrutiny and testing by argumentative evolutionary biologists.
