Richard Dawkins Worldview

Richard Dawkins
Introduction
I have chosen Richard Dawkins as the role model I am studying. His views are not the same as mine but he is a very well respected speaker and scientist. In this paper, I will explain the worldview that Richard Dawkins lived out in his life. I will compare and contrast the values and actions of Richard Dawkins with my own worldview and values.

My values are much like his, I try to show my children that you should try your hardest to be successful in life and have good morals. We strive to help our children be successful in life, to love God, not fear Him.

Sexuality
    Richard Dawkins is one of the founders of the "Gay Gene". It is believed that...
