Dawkins, based on key term employment, is thus a: chance-based mutation theorist whose theoretical terms are: random, blind, accident, and luck. We see Dawkins switching up his key term game, depending on what target he is attacking or what idea he is selling.
If he is attacking "god", as seen in River Out of Eden and God Delusion, the mechanism of form change become "chance" instead of "creation". "Chance becomes the new god", as some have paraphrases this logic before.
One has to remember when reading this, that Dawkins, by education, is a "zoologist". He has no degree in physics, chemistry, astronomy, cosmology, nor has studies thermodynamics. Hence, when we see him selling terms, which he claims apply throughout the "universe", such as shown below, we need to step back and analyze the physio-chemical correctness of what exactly he is claiming. Take the following claims:
- “In a universe of electrons and selfish genes , blind physical forces  and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky , and you won’t find any rhyme or reason  in it, nor any justice . The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose , no evil  no good , nothing but pitiless indifference.”
- — Richard Dawkins (1995), River Out of Eden (pg. 131-32) (errors: 8)
Dawkins claims that the "universe" is made of "selfish genes"? Karl Pearson, in his Grammar of Science (1893), however, has already explained that self-moving things are a violation of the principle of inertia, aka the "first law of motion". Dawkins here, in short, is claiming something that is a violation of the laws of motion of the universe, in the name of "pop science".
