More on Richard Dawkins and Dogs

I posted several times about Richard Dawkins' erroneous use of dog variations in an attempt to refute Michael Behe (here and here and here). Denyse O'Leary has added some comments from readers with additional analysis:
Darwinism predicts that there are no taxonomic limits to variation. However, every breeding experiment of the last 100 years that attempts to see how far variation can go (E. coli, drosophila, etc.) always encounters limits beyond which further change is not possible. Thus, the fundamental prediction of Darwinian theory has been consistently falsified in a century’s worth of experimental testing.

This might be overkill if it were not for Dawkins' condescending tone in his review.

Darwinian Fundamentalism As Science Stopper

If you have an iPod, and even if you don't, you should listen to the interviews (one and two) with Walt Ruloff on the blog ID the Future. Ruloff is the Executive Producer for the new film Expelled, starring Ben Stein, due out in February of next year, which was the subject of my last post. Both are interesting listening, and the second one discusses an interview in the film in which a researcher states that certain research never gets published because it undermines Darwinian theory, and researchers are afraid it will prevent them from getting further funding.

Among all the other harms, Darwinian fundamentalism is a science stopper.
