There is no dogma in science. That is literally the entire point of the scientific method. It is based solely on evidence, not dogma. Religious belief, such as belief that the Quran is the word of God, is dogmatic, as it must be taken on faith that Muhammad was 100% being honest.
This article expresses the problem of hubris working against science. Science and the scientific method contains no dogma. Human beings, otoh, have a tendency to screw things up. That doesn't speak to any problems with dogma in science, it speaks to problems of inherent dogma in human minds.One may like to read:
Please, no compulsion, however.
This isn't always true.There is no dogma in science.
This proves the point that science does not have an issue with dogma. Scientific integrity demands that all voices be heard and scrutinized. No dogma there.One may like to read:
"Our goal is not to destroy Ted, but rather to keep its stage one that doesn’t promote dogmatism and provokes evolving thinking. We believe Ted, as an institution with so much influence and trust from its constituents has a duty to hear, acknowledge and respond to those same constituents.

That isn't an example of dogma in science. It is a problem with dogma in certain members of the field of science. As you say, scientists aren't perfect. And, as such, their resistance in this context does not present dogma in science itself. It merely shows their own dogma.This isn't always true.
I specifically recall institutional resistance to the idea that bacteria cause ulcers.
Scientists are only puny miserable humans, so there will at times be a culture
reluctant to accept novel theories. Fortunately, the method is better than we are.
The same is true for the truthful religion.This article expresses the problem of hubris working against science. Science and the scientific method contains no dogma. Human beings, otoh, have a tendency to screw things up. That doesn't speak to any problems with dogma in science, it speaks to problems of inherent dogma in human minds.
