The Dawkins Delusion

I came across an article on Richard Dawkins about how his lecture tours were going. He apparently had one stop in the place Jerry Falwell used to preach. Reading this I was stuck by their similarities. Both preached what they believe with 'evangelical' zeal. Both used their 'faith' to make lots of money. Check out Dawkins website, this a big money site. Two sides of the same coin, a lesson to us all on how to make money using what we believe or don't believe.

Humanism or atheism is a wonderful philosophy of life as long as you are big, strong, and between the ages of eighteen and thirty-five. But watch out if you are in a lifeboat and there are others who are younger, bigger, or smarter. William Murray
