Richard Dawkins

Richard Dawkins discusses second life, gods and aliens.
Dawkins came to prominence with his 1976 book The Selfish Gene, which popularized the gene-centred view of evolution and introduced the term meme. In 1982, he introduced into evolutionary biology an influential[5] concept, presented in his book The Extended Phenotype, that the phenotypic effects of a gene are not necessarily limited to an organism's body, but can stretch far into the environment, including the bodies of other organisms.
