What some key contributions that Richard Dawkins made in the field of evolutionary biology?
Answer: Evolutionary Biology Evolutionary Biology is the study of how cellgroups have changed tissues in animals in order to adapt to the climate, and how different tissues c…ame together in order to create new organs for that animal. Answer Evolutionary biology is the study of how organisms evolve in response to changing variables in the environment, as well as how things are related to each other.

As a Christian I feel sadness and pity for Richard Dawkins andthose who follow his views which are not well informed,particularly when he speaks about the Christian faith. Som…efellow-atheists also do not regard Dawkins as well-informed. He isalso inconsistent in terms of his philosophical position. On onehand he says 'that's just tough' when speaking aboutmeaninglessness in the evolutionary/atheist position in regard tomeaning and purpose in the universe and then on another occasion hestates how sad it was in reference to a serious accident with aschool bus. If the universe is ultimately meaningless and there isno God as Dawkins believes then he needs to be consistent to havecredibility in terms of his position of meaninglessless and blindchance. Dawkins intolerance of the position of others is also legendary. Ifhis position is so watertight as he believes then one wonders whyhe attempts to silence other views and why he and his followers areso defensive. This inconsistency and intolerance (everyone has aright to my opinion) and his failure to recognize that his ownposition carries its own problems philosophically in terms of theultimate meaningless of blind chance applying to Dawkins' ownposition itself. This inconsistency in terms of recognizing theproblems with his own position rightly draw criticism from theistsand atheists alike, as does his stated aim to 'kill religion.' It also would be interesting for the presuppositions in thequestion to be substantiated in terms of actual evidence. Peopleoften fail to make a distinction between a profound disagreement ofphilosophical position as stated briefly above and a personalhatred. I totally disagree with Dawkins' position but I do not hatehim. He is both misguided and inconsistent as is evident by what hesays. His ignorance is also profound. Even on scientific matterssome fellow scientists express concern about his position. While itis certainly correct to state that hatred is not at least aChristian theistic position, such is not a position that has anychecks on it in terms of Dawkins' own position towards Christians.Certainly this brings various reactions from people. Some of thestrongest criticism of Dawkins' position I have personally seen isfrom fellow-atheists who are concerned he will give atheism andscience a bad name. Christian theists tend to ignore him in termsof credibility, since he is so blatantly intolerant and ignorant ofthe Christian position in so many areas. Another answer: By objectively evaluating such a situation, it is extremelyplausible that certain theists who vehemently voice their stance onRichard Dawkins are either too afraid to hear the truth, be forcedout of their comfort zone, and have to re-evaluate their meaning oftheir life and/or feel the need to be anti any intellect who hasempirically decided to display opinions that are not in accordancewith the norm. The majority of these few theists will probably alsodenounce any type of concept that is not within their understandingor belief system. The following fallacies could also be relevant: . Achilles heel: Finding a single fault in a system of conceptsin order to condemn the whole system . Argumentum ad hominem: Attacking a characteristic or belief ofthe person making the argument/claim . Argumentum ad populum: Agreeing with the majority to concludethe correct truth of a proposition All assumptions that "theism" refers only to Christianity, manytheists would have reason to hate him because he disproves most oftheir core beliefs quite well and belittles them for holding sucheasily beaten ideas.
Joseph Lister, 1st Baron Lister, OM, FRS (5 April 1827 - 10 February 1912) was an English surgeon who promoted the idea of sterile surgery while working at the Glasgow Royal I…nfirmary. He successfully introduced carbolic acid (phenol) to sterilize surgical instruments and to clean wounds, which led to reduced post-operative infections and made surgery safer for patients.

He also invented the reflecting microscope Anton van Leeuwenhoek -(1632-1723) Holland Cytologist who invented various single lens microscopes and discovered various microbes (protists) Carolus Linnaeus - (1707-1778) Sweden Father of Taxonomy Jane Goodall (1934- present) England - ethologist who studied Chimp behavior- lead authority in primatology J ohn James Audobon (1785-1851) Santo Domingo- ornithologist and inspiration of the Audobon Society- An organization whose goal is the research and protection of bird species Herman August Hagen - (1817-1893), Germany entomologist who worked with neuroptera and odonata (dragonflies) Santiago RamÃ³n y Cajal (1852-1934) Spain - the 'father' of neuroscience Austin Roberts (1883-1948), South Africa - zoologist and ornithologist George Sars (1837-1927) Norway -Marine biologist and a pioneer for fisheries science who researched cod populations Floyd Zaiger ( 1926-present ) America Fruit geneticist who created hybrids such as the 'pluot and aprium' Mriganka Sur 1953-present ) India cognitive neuroscientist who researched neuroplasticity Henry Suter - (1841-1918) New Zealand zoologist, naturalist and palaeontologist and malacologist
