neo-Darwinism if I'm not mistaken is ideologically driven but I could be
wrong. Punctuated equilibrium is SJ Gould's attempt to explain the spread of

has been debunked regarding biological evolution although it does in a sense
operate in cultural evolution.
The major theory of how evolution occurs is natural selection.
