"The Strange and Worrying Epidemic of Biologism"

Atheist Raymond Tallis, F.Med.Sci., F.R.C.P., F.R.S.A., bravely challenges the idea that "that nothing fundamental separates humanity from animality" — Rethinking Thinking.

He sees two "two cardinal manifestations" of this pseudo-scientific craze, namely "the claim that the mind is the brain" and "that Darwinism explains not only how the organism Homo sapiens came into being (as, of course, it does) but also what motivates people and shapes their day-to-day behavior," but concludes with "an indicator that the mighty edifice of philosophically naïve conventional neuroculture is starting to fall apart."
