Dear Richard,

I am happy to say that your book "The God Delusion" is responsible for 100% of my conversion to Atheism. However, I am sad to say that it may cost me my girlfriend. She is more Christian than God. Although I tried explaining to her my reasons for being an atheist, she just...

Mr. Dawkins,

I just recently finished reading your book The God Delusion and I must say it was very inspiring. For one, it gave me a topic for my psychology CRP (similar to a dissertation). I plan to study the harmful effects of indoctrinating (a.k.a. brainwashing) young children in religious...

I was raised catholic and ironically left that path because i was opposed to lack of truth that the church was portraying. However due to circumstances in life i was swayed in to attending a Pentecostal church for the better part of three years. Thankfully i have returned to my intelligent,...

Dr. Dawkins,

I do not expect a response to this email; in fact, I do not really expect you to have time to read it. But for myself, I wanted to send it for two reasons:

1. To thank you for writing The God Delusion;

2. To briefly relate my experience with religion deep in the fabled heart of...

Dear Mr. Dawkins,

Although it would be dishonest to give you full credit for turning me into an atheist, your efforts have helped me feel more confident about it. Religious fundamentalism is a widespread political mechanism that relies on fear, hatred, xenophobia and ignorance in order to force...

I have always been an atheist. I was raised by Christian parents and had siblings that were also believers but I essentially gave up my belief in God and Santa Claus at the same time. We lived on a farm and I observed that the visible evidence was that animals had sex, made babies, grew old and...

It is nearly midnight and I can hardly believe that I am sitting here at the computer, but I have been glued to it for the last three hours, looking at The Edge and the reviews of the Beyond Belief conference. I started to read The God Delusion because I attended an Alpha Course here in Bury St...

Dear Richard,

I am writing to thank you for your brilliant book, The God Delusion. I had been an atheist for some time, but could never really clarify my thoughts on the matter or defend my opinions effectively. Your book said what I did not have the eloquence to say. Thank you for giving me the...

I can't say I was converted rather reinforced by your book(s). Knowing little about the subject of genetics or Darwinism beyond what Time magazine might have to say, I have to believe that you know what you are talking about in those areas. It certainly makes as much or more sense than the...

Dear Dr. Dawkins:

I wish that I could say I was always an atheist. Raised with very benign Christianity - Christmas, weddings etc. Religion wasn't really discussed or debated, we were allowed to believe what we wanted but left to figure it out on our own. I remember going to church and...

Professor Dawkins,

I'd like to be able to credit you with my conversion from Roman Catholicism to Atheism, but that honour lies with the late, great, Douglas Adams. I distinctly remember reading one of the Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy novels (I think it was The Restaurant At The End Of...

Richard Dawkins, I want to thank you.

I was wrong for the first 25 years of my life.

My religious education had placed blinders over my sense of reason and if I hadn't read your books, I'd probably have gone on as a faithful lemming until my death.

The strength of my former conviction...
