Has Dawkins been used?

A few years ago in a video interview, Richard Dawkins was asked about the origins of genetic information, and after a long silence he finally made an apparently irrelevant answer. The Creationists making the video made a big deal about him being stumped by the question. Later on the magazine 'The Skeptic', after consulting with Dawkins, published a piece about how Dawkins was conned into appearing in the video interview and the video was edited to substitute a different question for the one that was asked. After the video makers released the raw footage, the accusations were dropped. You can read more about this incident here.

Now, once again, it appears Dawkins is making the same claims about the makers of the film 'Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed'. Read all about it at the New York Times.
