Richard,

Before reading "The God Delusion" I was an agnostic who had not really taken the time to investigate and draw any conclusions on where I stand. Looking back I don't see how I could have failed to research such an important subject. I guess I was so caught up in my day to day life...

Dear Richard.

I was born and raised a Roman Catholic and in my young years had decided to become a priest. I tried to gain all the knowledge I could by asking questions at school (Catholic School). The Priests answered some of my questions but unanserable ones were met with "you must have...

Dear Richard,

I was baptised and raised in the Catholic faith, to Catholic parents. From what I have heard of other people's experiences within Catholicism, it seems that my upbringing was very benign and I consider myself fortunate. As a result, I never really questions religion or my own...

Dear Richard,

It was actually Sam Harris who deconverted me from Catholicism, but I immersed myself in so much of your writing that I think you deserve some of the credit. Thank you for everything you do.

Andrew

I was an agnostic, but now, by page 104 of your book, I'm there, an atheist. It didn't take more than a bit of reasoned argument to convert me. Perhaps a theist will be able to convert me back with an equally well reasoned argument, however, I doubt it will consist of anything more than...

Dear Prof Dawkins,

Of your books, I've only read "The God Delusion". This has clarified some issues for me and I have now fallen off the agnostic fence firmly onto the atheistic side. For years I have ranted and raved silently at how people could believe every word of the bible...

Dear Editor,

I've been agnostic for most of my life and have recently converted to atheism. I'm not sure that there is much doubt left but on rare occasions I would still like to believe in faeries. Dawkins talks about the deaths brought about in the name of religion. Unfortunately for...

Dear Mr Dawkins,

First off I want to thank you for your book "The God Delusion. It was the most incredible life changing book I've ever read. In fact I enjoyed it so much I'm about to read it for a second time (around 3 weeks after the first).

Here's my story. I was a Christian up...

I have enjoyed and savoured the many comments I have read in Convert's Corner. Growing up in a dysfunctional christian home, with one parent, bedeviled to the bottle, my mother brought my sister and I up to find comfort, solice and hope in prayers and church attendance. The more desperate my...

Hello,

Although not strictly a convert (I have always been an atheist, or have at least always challenged the idea of a god), I have found the God Delusion to be a thrilling and thought-provoking read (well, listen. I bought the audiobook on cd). Very many good points were raised, and few could...

I've never been a strict Christian, but books like The God Delusion and The Blind Watchmaker helped me take the step from complacency in a semi-religious background (my father is a Christian, though not outspoken, and my mother is a pacifist agnostic) to de facto atheism. I now have a much...

Hi Dr. Richard,

I realize you are an extremely busy person, so I will be fast. I have just read your book "The God Delusion" and now I have two questions for you:

1) I was raised a catholic and almost joined a religious congregation many years ago. Thankfully I decided not to do it, and...
