It's a transparent piece of polemics aimed at discrediting the current ToE by attacking it's founding father. This is nothing new Worfish, we've seen theists do this for decades.

Wilson makes no religious arguments.

Note that I did not say he did.
I said his polemics are incredibly similar to the dishonest shit we've already seen from theists.
Also one does not have to make religious arguments to write a theistic polemics against ToE.

No, what he does is write a transparent piece of ill-informed polemics.
