Dear Professor Dawkins,

I am most grateful for your book, The God Delusion. With your book, lighting the dark room in my mind, I am able to fully grasp ideas like evolution. I was very shaky on evolution, growing up as a Methodist. Though my mother allowed me to freely pursue any science I so...

Dear Dr Dawkins,

Thank you for your very valuable work. I was raised in London under strict Islamic dogma, whose tenets and value I began to question in public school and was free to disgard up at Cambridge. Although I began my deconversion after reading Nietzsche and Freud, reading your...

Dear Professor Dawkins,

Thank you for completing the cleansing process of the final remnants of my superstitious (while benign, well-meaning and, at times, hilarious Church of England) upbringing.

The cleansing process started with Professor Steve Jones over twenty years ago and (although...

Dear Dr. Dawkins,

I wanted to thank you for your work. I'm an American college student raised Methodist. Although my parents were by no means very religious (in fact, it was my mother that dragged the rest of the family to church) I developed into a very closed-minded religious child. I...

Dr. Dawkins,

I am an 18 year old student, of Trinidad and Tobago, WI, that will be graduating this year, and to university in September. I have just finished reading The God Delusion, and although I've never quite been religious, I am still not quite a staunch athiest, though I think I'm...

Dear Professor Dawkins,

Around 10 years ago, while studying for my A-Levels, a friend of mine recommended your book 'The Selfish Gene'. Until this point I was probably a Deist with a leaning towards agnosticism. As soon as I had put down 'The Selfish Gene' I began to read...

Dear Mr Dawkins,

I was a "closet atheist" for over ten years until I read "The God Delusion". You inspired me to let my atheistic light shine! I was
raised a catholic, spent 12 years in parochial school, spent 12 years in a religious cult (The Children of God), have spread the oppressive...

I just recently finished reading "The God Delusion" and I must say it is nice to see that at least some individuals can think clearly and make cogent arguments about what they believe or do not believe in. It seems many in America these days, cannot. I cannot count how many times I have been...

Dear Richard Dawkins,

Yes, you were responsible for pushing me over the edge of the atheism abyss. Granted, by that point it really only took a nudge, but you were the nudger, by way of your interview entitled "The Atheist" on Salon.com. And it is by way of thanking you, and delighting in...

Professor Dawkins,

I am a 33-year-old brazilian male. Even though I am in the middle of your fantastic "The God Delusion Book", I confess that you've made me "lose my religion" several years ago - 6 years, to be exact - when I have read "The Selfish Gene". This really "raised my...

G'day !

As a 'very lazy' catholic educated female - God Jesus and the whole damned thing seemed improbable ...but it seemed too much like hard work to investigate deeply and to overcome my catholic indoctrination......until I read your book.

Thank you for doing all the hard work !...
