I would like to say thank you to Richard. After I found your books, I really opened my eyes. Also, I would like to say simply, 'keep it up!'The God Delusion was a wonderful read, and a book that makes you think. I look forward to more writings, and lectures, if St Pete is lucky enough. As a freshly out of the closet atheist, I find comfort knowing I am not the only one who thinks like this. Coming out to my mom, a bible beater of the less volatile stripe, was a hard thing to do. This is a strange time in my life. Thanks for being the bedrock and pillar for many of us out there.
