Richard Dawkins is a British evolutionary biologist and author. His 1976 book The Selfish Gene popularised the gene-centred view of evolution, as well as coining the term meme. Dawkins is a vocal atheist and is often referred to as one of the four horsemen of the New Atheism movement which began to grain traction in the mid-2000s, catalysed in large part by Dawkin's 2006 book, The God Delusion.
