According to the brief review I saw, Dawkins' latest book is arguing that
scientific discovery should add to, rather than detract from our wonder at
the world. Perhaps there is hope that he may realize that this argument
invalidates his philosophical and theological arguments.
Although Marx and Engels claimed to have an evolutionary approach, and some
Marxists claimed to have received Darwin's personal endorsement (the
account of that conversation is disputed), Marxism is contrary to modern
evolutionary theory at the point where it is also self-conflicting. Given
the opportunity to get ahead at the expense of others, people have
consistently done so, and there is no reason from evolutionary theory or
from history to believe that the proletariat is an exception.
