I was an atheist, but i did not want to be one, i wanted to believe that i am going somewhere when i die, i took a shot in the dark and sincerely and humbly asked God if he existed to let me know. That was 1991 and i have experienced God 1000's of times since then that i don't doubt His existence...

Dear Mr. Dawkins,

I'd like to tell you a fairy tale, since you like fairy tales.

Once upon a time, about 15 to 20 billion years ago, there was nothing; absolutely nothing anywhere in the entire universe.

Then the nothing exploded! A total vacuum, so they tell us, had become something!

After the explosion...

Dear Dr. Dawkins,

Your enthralling conversation on Irish radio news caught my attention during the week. I am almost 57 and was raised a Catholic - I still practice. We have a saying in Irish "ní gan chríonnacht an chinnteacht". My translation of that would be loosely "wisdom is not forthcoming without certainty"....

I will continue to keep you and each and every one of your followers in my daily prayers. Please feel free to contact me at any time, day or night if you would like for me to share with you why Jesus is so real in my life and why He loves you so much too.

Hello,

I just want to share this brilliant quote:

“The origins of most great religions go back to groups of people who made this discovery that you don’t look for god, you don’t look for power in the Caesars or in the temples or in the churches and all that. You look within.” (Tim Leary)

I enjoyed reading the book,The Greatest Show on Earth is was well written and brought to light some of my misconceptions of Darwin and evolution. However, to Professor Hawkins dismay, I am still a young earth creationist. I was not reared in a zealous religious house, I did believe in evolution...

Dear Mr. Dawkins,

It has been a great mystery to me as to why you do not understand the mere concept of faith. I have been looking through your books, watching your interviews, and watching debates that you have been apart of. Through all of this, it seems as though you and many others are “baffled” by the...

From a philosophical perspective, the mid 19th century (as we all know, Darwin’s era) is an interesting place; not least of all with regard to the notion of the ‘God of the gaps’. This essentially underpinned academic theology in that era – ultimately that whatever could not be understood through...

Dear Richard

Your talk-talk helps convert towards God. Faith in God is born in the crucible of suffering; experiences of subjection, humiliation, physical torture, burning. It can’t evolve from the crucible of pampering. You’re more of a crucible of pampering type of guy.

I am too, but it is possible for...

Dear Mr. Dawkins's followers,

If Mr. Dawkins were more intelligent than and as convincing as Einstein, I might deconvert. Of course I am joking, for I think religions are in many cases harmful, too, especially when they compete and want to prove superiority over other religions and beliefs. Also, we could never compare him to...

I remember the following letter which I read on Ceefax a few months ago. It seemed to go beyond the god/atheism debate:
Deity: Jehovah
Prophet: Jesus Christ
Evangelists: Archbishop of Canterbury ...

Deity: Random Chance
Prophet: Charles Darwin
Evangelists: Richard Dawkins ...
...

Just as having faith is not a requirement of science, proving the existence of God is not a requirement of faith. In fact, latter can lead to lack of faith if one remains increasingly unsatisfied while proofs become available.

Notice the statement: "I will not believe in God unless I have...
