It is not unusual for scientists to publish papers and, if they discover evidence that challenges them, to announce they were wrong. The idea that all scientific knowledge is provisional, able to be challenged and overturned, is one thing that separates matters of science from matters of faith.
Just find this a little amusing, given how often a strong Darwinian perspective is held up as right without question :-). Doesn't mean that it isn't, of course.
