I've titled my letter "not a convert" because I never believed in the magical man in the sky. At least as a teenager or adult. I understand why this is, with more and more greater understanding of evolutionary biology and modern science. Those who maintain religious belief by the sheer power...
I cannot help but cringe when I read some of the letters - one fellow says if life is a gift - who put it there? And he's SERIOUS!
The older I get the more I worry about the damage done to young people by parents and institutes stunting their mental development while they are young and...
The beauty of only one life.
Let's call "god" the intersection between mankind's proprietary ignorance and it's huge collective ego as the center of it all.
I come from a deeply religious catholic family, however since my childhood I never felt the need to ask for forgiveness on my actions rather than to think them...
Good afternoon Prof. Dawkins
I'm almost entirely sure that you don't really read all this letters but, please allow me to say this. you are an awesome person, who is a real credit to the HUMAN race. there are three reasons i'm an atheist now
1- My mother talked me into reading bible, quran and the history of religions. and...
Greetings Dr. Dawson
A Christian all of my life as well as an avid bibliophile, I happened to read The Selfish Gene last month. Your wonderfully easy to understand and yet concise writing was a joy. I have just finished chapter 9 in my new copy of The God Delusion, which of course deals with childhood abuses, and I...
Religious tenets are a source of inequity and suffering across all species.
As an advocate of non human animal rights, I am perplexed as to why those who acknowledge the animal status of humans do not naturally champion non- human animal rights.
When considering the overwhelming...
I've got a great theory,but don't know enough about science to disprove myself,so im hoping you can,or cant! Its all about perspective of size,why cant the big-bang be a super-nova and our universe be all the debris thrown out from that? and taken a step further,why cant the entirety of space be...
I have been looking for an atheist credo of some sort and haven't found one that I like, so I decided to write one. Your ideas and comments would be appreciated:
We believe in the Big Bang,
a force almighty,
maker of space, time, all matter,
and of all that is explicable and yet...
Hello Mr. Dawkens if you are reading this I would like to give my thanks to you. It was you ( and many others ) who inspired me to question everything and see how religion is in fact doing humanity more bad then good. Please keep doing what you are doing and I wish you every success in the future.
Dear Mr Dawkins
As life-long atheist, enjoyed "The God Delusion."
Your comment equating a belief in a god to a belief in a celestial orbiting teapot inspired me to write a "sermon" on "The Way of the Teapot."
Had my writing group crying with laughter.
Sendingt by snail-mail. Enjoy
I really like your work. I've seen a lot of TV shows you starred in and documentaries you made.
Currently I study Physics and chemistry + linguistics and robotics as a hobby.
I also like to debate creationism, religion and pseudoscience. Lately I've been busy arguing against the popular...
Dear Mr. Dawkins
I know you won't read my letter, but that's not the point.
Because I love You very very much.
You are for me just like God. We humans, who are the fifth ape, have this very sensation, that we have something more than just ourselves, a supreme being who we could talk to.
Your new book is...
