A. Garret Lisi is a surfer, skier, and snowboarder. He also happens to be a theoretical phsyicist and the founder of a highly controversial mathematical theory, "The Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything". His theory suggests that everything is connected . . . and he can prove that connection through a mathematical equation. (I'm not a physicist, so I'm not going to even try to describe the specifics.)
Lisi was featured on the pilot episode of "Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman" concerning the existence of a creator.
