Evolutionary psychology versus the eonic effect…

Evolutionary biologists have to be the dumbest of scientists…For over two generations critics have pointed to the failures of selectionist darwinism but the professional cadre is almost belligerent in its rigidity.

The appearance of atheist critics of Darwin and darwinism, such as Jerry Fodor, despite a lot of counterattacks, signaled the end of the reign of dogmatic darwinism…or did it?
