as I have posted about before, philosopher Jerry Fodor, has written the following book against evolution: 


Although Fodor is an atheist, it does not stop him from being stupid.  this book is full of b.s. arguments that have been debunked a thousand times, like (1) survival of the fittest is a tautalogy, (2) natural selection is post-hoc reasoning, (3) Darwin didn't know about genetics,

he also makes a b.s. comparison about evo devo (developmental evolution) overstepping  its bounds, like skinner's operant conditioning.  this is absolute fail because of the massive amount of evidence that proves the contrary. 

the writing style of this book also sucks very badly.

if you can, please read a review then give the book a shitty review as to let other atheists know (you arent going to convince christians) that this book is garbage.

here are some reviews:

I've always wondered what mechanism for Evolution he suggests in place of Natural Selection. Is he all about Genetic Drift or what?
I have been called philosophically crude on my critiques of his book, which is hilarious. there is no need to talk about epistemic defeaters, internalism, and modals because Fodor is a naturalist. I keep my critiques in the logic and scientific realm. In these 2 things, his book fails miserably.
