Dear Mr. Dawkins, Just wanted to tell you that I never really believed in any of the religious crap that was fed to me. I was raised catholic in a small New England town and went through the whole rigor-moral (baptism as a baby, first communion at 7, and finally confirmation at 16), but I knew from an extremely early age that it was all a crock. Anytime I would vocalize my disbelief I would be screamed at and squelched....but I knew what was real. It's partly why I became a scientist and engineer. Thank you (and Mr. Darwin) for ALL of your literature and insights. I have read most of your books and have watched many of your videos. Take care, and long life to you...and remember, no death-bed conversions! :-) Tom E.
