Dear Mr. Dawkins,

I am currently a 23 year-old first-year law student at the Oklahoma City University School of Law in Oklahoma City, OK. There were many factors contributing to my decision to attend law school immediately upon receipt of my undergraduate degree, but none more so than the...

I met Richard at a Humanist Conference long ago, danced with him, found him very pleasant, personable, and his talk most interesting.

With regard to The Selfish Gene, I think he is too harsh in his criticism to attract most away from dogmatic religion. I left dogmatic religion when I got...

Dear Professor Dawkins,

My name is George Mink, and I am a native of Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Over the years, most particularly having been raised by a Roman Catholic school, I have developed a growing distain for all thing religious,...

Richard

In my twenties I thought I had seen the light but soon saw the dark again. I read all your books and Stephen Gould's too. I have already passed my copy of the god delusion to at least 10 people (hope not impacted too much on sales). Have you ever considered exploring the implications...

Dear Dr Dawkins

You didn't actually convert me, but I am glad you trailblaze for the unreligious.

I heard about God for the first time aged four, when I started at Infants school, and found the idea very intriguing. It is still fresh in my memory over 50 years later. Heaven...

Dear Richard Dawkins,

I just wanted to thank you for allowing me to see the immeasurable beauty in evolution. The Greatest Show On Earth has filled me with a new respect and excitement for life. I now have an understanding of what Freud meant by "oceanic" feelings, and it is...

Dear Mr. Dawkins,

My husband and I had the "opportunity" to watch Expelled the other day, and your interview with Ben Stein was the highlight. The charming and good-humored way you dealt with Stein’s inane questions completely disarmed him and made him look like a buffoon without you...

Dear Mr. Dawkins

I live in croatia, a proud catholic nation ( roman catholicism 87.8%, in 2001). Im sorry for that. Most nonbelievers here are just agnostics, theist agnostics. I assure you that i can count number of atheists i know of on just one hand, counting myself, with few fingers still...

Dear Professor Dawkins,

Thank you very much for your commitment to reason and science, it is because of your book "The God Delusion" that I am now an atheist. I was raised with only a nominal Christian upbringing and did not consider myself a Christian, but was never an atheist. I wanted to...

Just plowing through The God Delusion and as someone who's had all these thoughts rolling around in my head from age 10; it is a breath of fresh air to realize that I wasn't mad or just some awful anti-religious person. Reading your book and Sam Harris' along with the likes of Jiddu Krishnamurti...

I can only dream that Mr. Dawkins himself would read this, though that seems naive at best. I just wanted to say thank you, to both Mr. Dawkins and everyone that makes his message stand strong against the slathering hordes of ignorance and superstition. To the person who reads this: Thank you. ...

Richard Dawkins,

First and foremost, thank you. You are an inspiration to me and are one of my heroes. I am fifteen years old and I live in a small town in the bible belt in the southern U.S. and I am an essentially isolated atheist. As a young child I was exposed to Christianity and until...
