HI

I think my story is probably very boringly similar to most converts out there.

I was brought up in the Catholic faith (shock! "poor thing' my adult friends say) - I found it to be a stultifyingly boring experience ... hour-long sessions at church on a Sunday (while dad was out...

My name is chris, and I came out to my family and friends about a year ago as an atheist. My family have been great, they didnt view it as a big deal and to be honest I dont think they even cared... Which I guess is a good thing. My friends reacted differently. I attend a catholic high school in...

‘The God delusion’ gave me the information i needed to be a confident atheist, i was always highly sceptical of the idea of any god, but the book gave me the confidence i needed, as well as showing me there are many other ‘devoted atheists’ out there.

Dear Prof Dawkins,

I'm not 100% sure why I feel compelled to send this message, but..

I am a convert which is to say I have finally admitted, to myself, that religion is a lie wrapped up in a fairytale masquerading as the 'one true way', which, it clearly isn't.

I'm not sure whether it...

Dear Richard Dawkins,

Religion was never apart of my life in a major way growing up. I was lucky that although my mother was raised in a strong Catholic family, she never forced it on us in any meaningful way even though she still has her own personal faith and it must have caused grief...

Hello.

I read Douglas Adams’ notes on the RDF website, and it rang a familiar bell. Like him, I struggled quite a bit for twenty years or so, until I got some “guts”, and started reading. I started with Origin of Species, and graduated to others like Pierre Tailhard de Chardin Louis Leakey...

Dear Prof. Dawkins

I realise that you are a celebrity by anyone's standards and that a letter from a random person might not be very important. Regardless, I'd very much like to take the time to tell you a little something about myself. For most of my school years I went to a Christian...

I owe the four horseman of new atheism and Dr. Dawkins and Carl Sagan especially for the sanity and happiness I now have. This was a post I made on my facebook to come out to my family. for some background I grew up in a young earth creationist, protestant fundamentalist home. I was teaching and...

Dear Dr. Dawkins:

I was never one of the fundamentalist Christians that I have come to despise in the United States, but I did attend a Catholic school for my elementary and high school education. I was a believer in God, even though I had many questions that were never fully answered by the...

Dear Professor Richard Dawkins and the team at RDFRS, without whom the world would be a much poorer place.

I have the temptation to start this email off with a personal history about my religious upbringing and the events that lead to my embracing atheism entirely, but a small part of my...

Dear Richard Dawkins,

My name is Samuel, I live in West Texas, and I’m in an odd situation.

I was raised in a non-denominational / Methodist household, married a Pagan girl, spent time as a Druid student, and also studied the Tao.

What, you might ask, was the reason for the pinballing...

Dear Richard,

I'm sure my experience sounds quite similar to many other stories submitted here - the typical Christian upbringing, the slow questioning of scriptural logic (or lack thereof) with the eventual rejection of religion altogether.

After reading the God Delusion, I was...
