Dear Mr Dawkins
I'm a South African musician and, although I was raised in the Anglican church ( Sunday school, confirmation, the works!) I was fortunate enough to have an agnostic mother who encouraged me not to blindly believe anything I learned in the church but to question all the information they passed on.
Despite her best efforts I still had a "Christian phase". I fell for the emotion, the music.. The guilt, the fear.
Recently I've been sensing that a life without "God" is far simpler and much more satisfying than the alternative.
Your book confirmed and made sense of so many things. It feels as though I'm finally seeing the world as it really is.. And it's beautiful!
