Any two opposites, no matter how greatly divergent, will contain something in common, if for no other reason, strictly because they both are concepts and both belong to the same world. Thus, they can be projected upon a common plane, and made subject to a common measure. 

Any two things have certain attributes in common, and certain mutually exclusive attributes. The proportion between them gives a measure of their relative "likeness" and "unlikeness". 

To state that two things share a SIMILARITY is to focus on their common core, which once defined can be later used as an enduring standard in analysis of subsequent things. To state that two things are in some degree DIFFERENT is to make a pronouncement of value for a given situation only.
