What you and "The real common" is the same *strategy*:
of "cooperating with an enemy" (Coulson J., et al, eds., "The Oxford
Illustrated Dictionary", 1980, p694)

In this case the "enemy" is Atheistic Materialism in the guise of Evolution.
You sincerely believe that the correct strategy is appeasing atheists like
Dawkins and destructively criticising Christian apologists like Hugh Ross
and Phil Johnson, who oppose Evolution.

This is classic quisling strategy. When confronted by overwhelming
force and almost certain defeat, quislings believe that the best strategy for
their side's survival is to attack those on one's side who are opposing the
enemy and try to appease the enemy.

Some, like the original quisling, Vidkun Quisling, the Norwegian politician
who collaborated Nazis during World War II, even believe the enemy is
mostly right, and their own side is mostly wrong. One wonders why they
don't just join the enemy and be done with it. Maybe unconsciously they
already have?
