That evolutionary scientists are materialists seems to be belied by the way some of them write.
It’s telling that one kind of evolution always seems to be missing from these “theories” about the evolutionary origins of religion.
One might call the 20th century a “philosopher of the gaps” period, with scientists basking in the headlines and philosophy finding less and less to do.
Note the artfully deployed passive voice. One-way traffic “was finally counteracted by the launch of the first artificial satellites.” Who counteracted it?
This book is built on solid science. It’s going to be harder than ever for critics to spit it out just because they don’t like its taste.
