Richard Dawkins and Jim Daly

Are the similar? Daly uses Focus on the Family as a political platform. Dawkins uses his standing in academia for the same thing. Neither seem content in their beliefs. Each seem to need to take away from the other side to prove their point.

What do you think?

  • I don't see what putting down the other side has to do with being content in their beliefs. If someone finds fault with what others believe and sits by and says and does nothing, then they are allowing the world to be filled with what they consider negativity and lies. Why not speak up, stress your opinions and point out the fallacies of the other side? People are so hung up on tolerance...

  • Dawkins doesn't have a political platform. He's an evolutionary biologist who fights against creationists who try to discredit evolution. Focus on the Family fights to deny gays the right to marry. I see nothing similar between the two.

  • Thanks, Kelley! I was scratching my head, trying to figure out what those two men had in common, and couldn't come up with anything. I can see now that it's because they really have nothing in common.

  • Dawkins has no political agenda huh? You may want to double check that one.
