David Berlinki’s response to critics of his April Commentary article “A Scientific Scandal” is online. Unfortunately, the original article isn’t, but you can still be entertained and enlightened about the ongoing debate about Darwin’s limitations. Richard Dawkins, who does have some explaining to do, sadly does not put in an appearance.

Myself, I accept Darwin’s theory as far as it goes, but am increasingly bewildered by the defensiveness and hostility of scientists to interesting and what seem to me perfectly reasonable challenges to the theory.
