Richard
I just wanted to let you know how much a enjoyed reading your book "The God Delusion" whilst on holiday in Tunisia with my family.
What faith or beliefs i had were shattered earlier this year with the sudden death of my mother.
I found your book very enlightening and should i dear to...

I grew up in a Christian home, and we used to go to Church every Sunday until I reached my teens. By that time, I decided I wanted to spend those two and a half hours (they tend to be longer here) doing something else than listening to another sermon I couldn't understand at the time anyway! The...

Hello Mr. Dawkins, and first of all THANK YOU for the knowledge that you fearlessly give to the world. It is needed.

I was not raised in an overly religious home, though my mom does consider herself a christian, which goads me to no end, because she is a smart and, for the most part, rational...

Dear Dr. Dawkins,

I'm 52, and I have been a faithful Jehovah's Witness all my life.
However, being a curious man, I have read my Bible many, many times (in French and English), with the intent of studying it, and knowing it in depth. I went door to door, with the confidence and the clout of...

Dear Dr. Dawkins,

Douglas Adam's is not the only convert to atheism!
I'm sure you would have gotten the message by now, by the tons of letters you receive. Still I thought it would be better of me to congratulate you for your book. Frankly speaking, I had a lot of difficulty in obtaining '...

I was raised by a very Catholic family. To keep it simple; witnessing their struggles with drinking and drug addiction while at the same time being forced to attend a private religious school as well as church services with my family caused me to doubt the entire thing.

But it was the books I...

I was raised in a Baptist household near Cleveland, Ohio. I was a naturally curious child and loved to read and learn. I absorbed knowledge like a sponge and always sought more.

When I neared my teenage years, I started to question the religion I was brought up to believe. I had so many...

Dear Professor Richard Dawkins,

Being brought up in a powerfully Protestant Christian-based household (baptist, to be more precise), I spent my entire underage life believing without a shadow of doubt in my mind the beliefs my parents and religious instructors enforced in me, taking every word...

To the Master Disillusionist,

Since about the age of ten I found several things in the bible that don’t make sense. Why does god allow evil to exist if he has the power to destroy it in an instant, or even to erase it from time? If he loves us all so, then from whence cometh hell? Surely if a...

Dear Professor Dawkins

I'm writing to thank you, for opening my mind to the possibility of being a rationalist, of being skeptical, and of being an atheist.

Although I was not brought up by religious parents, the school I went to was Church of England, and naturally, as a young, easily...

Dear Richard,

I am writing now as a twenty-one-year-old university student in southwestern Michigan. Though my relatives are mostly moderate Christians, I fortunately avoided much of a religious upbringing. Religion was never important to me as a child. In fact, I considered myself an...

Just wanted to thank Richard for his wonderful books and to tell you my story of coming out.

I was born in Ogden Utah yes mormon land. My parent's really never forced me to go to church so to speak it was a habit of them to go to church since they didn't know any better. I was skeptical from...
