Dawkins says down with monogamous fidelity and yes to politicians lying about their private lives

I can't fathom how anyone in their right mind would find Richard Dawkins' arguments regarding marital fidelity to be at all persuasive.

I believe Macht makes a good point about Dawkins' talk about "rising above nature. "
There is something odd, I think, about a staunch naturalist thinking we can "rise above nature." Odd, not only in the fact that he seems to think that there is something wrong with nature that needs to be overcome, but also in the fact that he thinks there is something above nature to which we can rise.
