Perhaps more explicitly now?:
On a new episode of ID the Future, historian Richard Weikart, author From Darwin to Hitler, talks with host Michael Keas about a recent book by philosopher Michael Ruse on Darwinism, Christianity, and war. Weikart records a curious fact: in the course of the book Ruse appears to shift from warning others about treating Darwinism as a secular religion to embracing it himself as such.Richard Weikart, “Richard Weikart: Michael Ruse Embraces the Darwinian Religion” at Evolution News and Science Today
If the facts are failing Darwinism and smart people are now safe to just plain doubt the claims of people like Dawkins and Ruse, what is left but blind faith?

Does Darwinism not matter the way it used to? David Gelernter was NOT flung out on his ear for doubting Darwin. And, how many people much care now what P.Z. Myers thinks? Is ultra-Darwinism past its sell-by date?

A few quotes to that effect:
So, if Weikart classifies “Darwinism” as a religion, does he mean that it is thereby a better or worse way of “knowing”?
Seeing that Darwinism hasn’t led to any knowledge it is obvious it isn’t a way of knowing.
