Because you didn't actually comment on what he said, only on what others have written.


What others have documented, not just "said", is that Wilson committed numerous errors of fact. That alone is reason to ignored this alleged biography.

He may have made some scientific and historical errors, that's true, but his broader argument is correct in that Darwin based his theory of natural selection not so much on a study of biology but rather on population economics and social policy.
