The world's 10 biggest ideas. Really?

The New Scientist claims that the following list was the result of asking 10 of the biggest names in science to explain the significance of their discipline. They magazine does not state how it ranks thse 10 and it is not always clear how the ideas relate to every respondent's discipline. But it is still a good article.

The 10 ideas, by the way, are:
1. The big bang
2.
Evolution
3.
Quantum mechanics
4.
The theory of everything
5.
Risk
6.
Chaos
7.
Relativity
8.
Climate change
9.
Tectonics
10.
Science
Do we all agree?
