William Spriggs lives in Colorado with his wife whom he met and married while both worked as letter-carriers in the U.S. Postal Service. While employed there, he worked side-by-side with women and men for 21 years earning the same salary – to the penny. He witnessed first-hand that women were equal to the task; brain power and physical skill were not limited by gender.

His extensive research and writing has confirmed his intuitive conclusions.

Many people are not aware that Darwin’s natural selection theory was co-authored and presented to the world in 1858 by what Darwin’s biographer, Janet Browne, called, “…a nobody from nowhere.” His name was Alfred Russel Wallace.

Mr. Spriggs considers himself in the same category as Mr. Wallace as “a nobody from nowhere” in presenting a female-based theory that seems to have been overlooked – or ignored. He considers himself to be an independent scholar not tied to traditional venues; he has been refining his theory first mentioned in his writings since February, 2004.

Originally from New Jersey, Mr. Spriggs grew up in a house with five older women – 2 older sisters, 2 older cousins, and his mother while his father was self-employed and worked 24/7 days a week outside the home and was only present for meal times and evenings.

Mr. Spriggs has held a fascination with evolution and the primates since high school. On many occasions, he would skip his high school classes and spend a day by himself in the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. He found the exhibits surrounding early humans the most fascinating and was stuck by how closely those early humans looked – you know, human – with a bit more hair, of course.

Growing up in a female-dominated household, he established a long-term view bordering on astonishment concerning the incredible innate abilities of the female to adapt and survive in the highly male-dominated world of the 1950s.

While working at the Postal Service, he thrived in the work environment that allowed him at least four hours daily of walking and climbing stairs to front porches. Delivering mail is more complicated than the general public sees; the intelligence needed to remember hundreds, sometimes, thousands of names in a delivery sequence while dealing with the dangers of outdoor conditions. Hazards include dogs protecting their territories, children running between parked cars into the street, and occasionally – irate customers. And let’s not forget: They have to remember who lived on the route and moved; making sure that their mail is forwarded for one year.

Walking on his daily route, about 4 miles, he spent many hours pondering evolution as it was biologically attached in our modern world. He wrote many of his early essays on a small portable laptop inside his delivery truck while on his lunch break (30 minutes

“After I visited Darwin’s home in Down England in 2001, I discovered that Darwin would take daily walks on his “Sandwalk” and ponder evolution and the wonder of nature. I know you may not think it’s the equivalent as walking a postal route, but I see the similarity in wanting to be alone with one’s deep, inner thoughts on a daily basis – it allows constant review of one’s thoughts and I would consider    it exercise for the brain.”
