I would just like to thank you for opening my eyes to the wonders of
evolution. I first discovered your books at the age of 17, when I was given The Selfish Gene and A Devil's Chaplain as gifts. I loved these books, and A Devil's Chaplain in particular inspired me to read both The Lion...

I was raised in the liberal United Church of Christ, but was born again as an emotionally vulnerable thirteen-year-old, whose parents had just divorced. I experienced peace of mind, and so vowed to enter the Christian ministry. After high school, I attended a Calvinist junior college, where...

Though I was forced to be a Catholic, in my heart, from my earliest memories, I was an atheist. When leaving my home at the age of eighteen, I was able for the first time to declare this fact when asked what my religion was. It was the most wonderful feeling that I ever experienced, to be honest...

My parents were "Hardshell" southern baptist. I never subscribed to their beliefs and did not push my children toward any religion. I am proud to say that I do not believe there is a god. I retired from the Air Force after almost 30 years service. Men who I supervised used to tell me I was...

I'm not sure if you'll get this but I just wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoyed your book The god Delusion. It's one of the best books about the absurdity of religion I've read for a while. I also thought your documentary The Root of All Evil, which I found online,...

I just wanted to express my delight and appreciation of the experience of reading Prof. Dawkins' book. As someone educated and brainwashed in the Catholic religion and a student of Theology , I had nonetheless serious doubts as to the moral and intellectual basis of church teachings. These...

I am a high school student at an advanced high school program for biology, focusing on the molecular side of things, but biology nonetheless. Despite having a firm rooting in evolution and great professors, some (actually all) of my most intelligent peers contine to reject evolution as a...

I do not write letters to celebrities. I do not write to authors, actors, singers or scientists even though Carl Sagan, Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke are among the people I admire most. This is the first time, in my almost 67 years, I have done so and it will likely be the last. I tell you...

words to my new song

You've gotta say nope to the Pope
Tish to the Archbish
Say ba bye to the Rabbhi
For Life's a lot dullah with a mullah
Religion does your muja heed een*.

Please direct this to Professor Dawkins or at least carve another notch on to the receptionist's desk.

I received my copy of The God Delusion yesterday and read the first two chapters right away. Good stuff.

My girlfriend came to visit, found the book, read the first pages and then some...

Thank you for putting into words what I have been struggling with the last 50 years. I am a product of 12 years of catholic school with all the associated guilt. I could never buy into the teachings of the catholic church; teachings that are contrary to rational thought.

How could one be damned...

I have just taken delivery of my copy of The God Delusion from Amazon. I opened it with great excitement. The excitement turned to tearful gratitude when I saw Richard Dawkins' dedication to Douglas Adams at the front.

I still feel bereaved by the passing of dear Douglas, though I never...
