Just slightly. Punctuated Equilibrium is an theory within the theory of evolution. It is also a theory that can't be tested, which means it's no more than a worthless story, and probably doesn't even qualify as science. Needless to say, PE is completely useless in any practical sense. Gould was a talker, not a doer; he contributed nothing at all to the advancement of applied science.

Well the usage is in the identification with normal life . If there is a strange colleague for example, one could somehow use one of the allegories of darwin how certain doves did evolve after his theory.
