Geek Of The Week: Richard Dawkins

Geek Of The Week: Richard Dawkins

This is the final GOTW of 2014. To take the year out with a “bang”, this week’s GOTW is somewhat controversial. Richard Dawkins is an evolutionary biologist and known atheist. Like Neil Degrasse Tyson (a former GOTW), he is loved by some and hated by others because of his opinions on religion. Dawkins has written 12 books and has a doctorate from the University of Oxford. He also has 12 honorary doctorates from various universities around the world. He has received numerous awards for his work in evolutionary biology and speaks to college students regularly. Love him or hate him, this geek has certainly made the news a lot. A great GOTW to finish off 2014.
