just like to mention that by reading your works - most notably the God Delusion - I have become very self-assured in my disbelief. I am a 23 year old student at St Andrews university, and it was there that I first became aware of your opinions and passionate views on atheism. For many years I was midly religious, experiencing bouts of scepticism every now and then. I never had the courage to become an avowed atheist because the thought depressed me. However, your books have given me the strength to articulate my disbelief. thank you so much!
