Mr. Dawkins,

I have just finished reading your book, "The God Delusion" and watching some of your videos as well. The gratitude I have for your unwavering stance based upon truth and reason is immesaurable. I must say that since my evolutionary de-conversion over the last year, I have grown...

Dear Professor Dawkins,

I am a piano teacher from Southampton, mother of two, ex-roman catholic. I had already taken the painful journey of denouncing my religion as a result of much reflection after studying Philosophy at college. I have since moved through Agnosticism to proud Atheism. I am...

Good afternoon,

By now you certainly should recognize the immense impact of your work in raising the public's consciousness about religious falsehoods. Thanks for helping me step out of the atheism closet. I love your work, and appreciate your effort to improve scientific literacy (much...

Dear Dr Dawkins

I was once a committed 'born again' christian.

I had always believed that creation was far too intricate and wonderful to have just occurred. Evolution was not a problem for me, my beliefs ultimately rested on the existence of god not on the details of how he arranged...

Dear Professor Dawkins, or may we call you Richard?

Your influence via the God Delusion, lecture talks posted on this site and the various RDF forums have been a great help and have boosted our psychological well being.

I will be brief, our tale is no longer a cause of pain, guilt and deceipt. ...

I was a Catholic school boy, indoctrinated and imbued with Christian theology and dogma. I do have to say I enjoyed the old Catholic mass, the chanting, the gorgeous vestments, the incense, the candles, the warm, fuzzy feeling coming from familiarity. During the long, tedious sermons my mind...

Dear Professor Dawkins,

I was born and raised a Shiite Muslim. At the age of 17 years, I began taking religion seriously and was on the quest for the "meaning of life" and "truth". I read the Koran almost inside out (5 different translations from the various muslim sects plus their...

Your books have helped me greatly in getting over the brainwashing of my childhood. I was raised in an conservative evangelical home, in the Church of the Nazarene. I took it all very seriously but by the time I was in my 20's I was, anguishingly, having very many doubts. I doubted my...

I am 50 today, and, after a life of delusion, became, this year, a Born-Again Enlightened Atheist.

I know - I squirm at 'Born-Again' too - but as I will illustrate - I really do feel that way....

I bitterly resent the invidious, devious calculating process whereby the Christian Church...

Dear Dr. Dawkins,

From the ages of 17 to 20 I was a tormented Christian. I believed (i.e. was too scared to not believe) just enough to fear reading anything that might cause me to doubt Christianity. I was in an endless loop of doubt caused by the obvious absurdities of the bible followed by...

Dear Richard Dawkins,

Technically, you didn't convert me to atheism. Friedrich Nietzsche, Carl Sagan, and Joseph Campbell beat you to it. But I want to tell a story that illustrates your indirect influence on my life.

As a sophomore in college I took my first philosophy class. One class...

I'm not a religious person at the first place, although I was growing up I attending Christian schools. During my college days, a devout Christian friend keep persuading me to attend his "church". It was one of those charismatic church where they gather in a big hall inside an office building...
