Nothing better to do? Trying to impress all here? What is your point?

Darwin is mentioned in the book while the others are not, because regardless of the contribution of others, it is Darwin who gets the prize for his extensive work on defining the theory with research and experiment and publishing said work. Anaximander, James Hutton and Edward Blyth among others have a claim to the fame too. The book is not a backslapping exercise, but an attempt to explain reality from myth.

(Maybe he did, I do not yet have the book.)

Maybe you should wait then.
