Whenever you throw TDD without worshiping it you turn yourself immediately in a victim of religious fundamentalists. TDD is a gift from god, it's good, it's cool and should never be questioned. It's a dogma.
Frans Bouma complains about it and the lack of scientific proof of the fact that TDD is really useful and good. Phil Haack throws a paper at him (which I haven't read - just looked at) but, from his own comments, doesn't dismiss Frans's point.
Why are we testing code anyway? What does it prove? According to Frans, not much. I'll have to agree with Frans on this. In summary, first you need to prove (or have proof) that what you are going to code is the right thing. Only then you can prove that you've done it correctly.
This goes even further when frameworks like TypeMock are considered too powerful. They are seen as evil in the eyes of the purists. Roy Osherove questions his readers and TypeMock community about this.
My bottom line in this subject is that testing tools are just tools like any other tools use in software development. The fact that they are becoming so good and powerful just changes what tools we use and how we use them.
I like compiled languages because they give me confidence over interpreted languages, because I can assert that although my code might have some errors on what it does it doesn't have any errors on how it was written.
On another level, unit testing and mock frameworks give me confidence that my code will do exactly what I intended it to do. Which might still not be correct.
