Default Evolution: Fact, Theory, Dogma, or Fiction

Nicholas Wade's review of "The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution," by Richard Dawkins, counterpoints the opposing dogmatic views of evolution as either fact or theory. An interesting alternative, would be to consider evolution as a useful scientific fiction, in the spirit of Hans Vaihinger, author of "The Philosphy of "As If"".
