The CSC has a nice short article rehashing and summarizing some of the evidence supporting the idea that Darwinism contributes little to scientific discoveries (see earlier post Evolution Contributes Nothing to Medicine). The CSC notes how, in one case, the claims of evolutionary contribution to one discovery were gradually downgraded to being attributed to comparative genomics instead, and "evolution was merely brought in as an afterthought."
Here, as elsewhere, I found that Darwin’s theory had provided no discernible guidance, but was brought in, after the breakthroughs, as an interesting narrative gloss.
What is exciting is, looks like they will be publishing a book on this phenomenon entitled Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design. Nice.
