      I'm not entirely sure that I trust Dawkins' agenda. He seems to
      aggressively campaign for atheism in the same way that he accuses
      certain Christians of pushing Christianity. Certainly both points of
      view should be out in the realm of discourse, but I think that he is
      somewhat of a hypocrite.
