Wilson makes no religious arguments. He points out that the ToE as a concept was established well before Darwin. What Darwin did was try and explain evolution, for which there were many explanations at the time, in terms of Malthusian economics and Victorian racism.

Lol. Utter bollox. Darwin argued against The racists of his time, people like Galton, for instance. Darwin saw no reason to classify Africans and Asians as separate species like his counterparts. Anthor unique thing about Darwin's theory is that it doesn't put humanity on a pedestal. A human is no more evolved than a blade of grass. This rubbished racist ideas that white people are 'more' evolved.
