Atheist indoctrination requires discrediting free will?

Dinesh D’Souza comments on the recent spate of atheist indoctrination projects:
One way in which science can undermine the plausibility of religion, according to biologist E.O. Wilson, is by showing that the mind itself is the product of evolution and that free moral choice is an illusion. “If religion…can be systematically analyzed and explained as a product of the brain’s evolution, its power as an external source of morality will be gone forever.”

Well then, as Mario Beauregard an I demonstrate in The Spiritual Brain, their project is a non-starter. And no wonder they sound ever more shrill.
