I just wanted to express my delight and appreciation of the experience of reading Prof. Dawkins' book. As someone educated and brainwashed in the Catholic religion and a student of Theology , I had nonetheless serious doubts as to the moral and intellectual basis of church teachings. These doubts were always allayed by my being referred to Aquinas and Augustine as implacable authority.
Prof Dawkins has managed, for the first time, to make me realise the error of these teachings and I can now claim to be a proud Atheist and a signed up "Bright".
I look forward to reading more and attempting to convince my friends to do the same.
