Fodor and Nagel and the braindead realm of academic zombies on evolution…

We will relist these two books without the garbled review: they are both important works and shows that something is stirring in academia, but I have to wonder if these books had any effect. Guess what the world of academia, as evidenced by the reign of Darwinism. It is an extraordinary record: almost the entire field of biology (in the US, mostly elsewhere) cannot debrief the theory of natural selection, one that as Nagel points out strikes amateurs as obviously wrong and implausible. And yet all the products of the university system are conditioned in a cyrpto-ideological mindset. Some have blamed this on capitalism ideology and the way Darwin’s theory promotes competition and survival of the fittest, also two capitalist favorites. The integrity of science is at risk, but nothing can seem to penetrate the false awareness here.
