I can't even begin to express my thanks to you Mr Dawkins. You have completely turned my life around. I was born with a predispostion towards nervous disorders and depression. The religious indoctrination I recieved as a small child with the Jewish and Christian faiths fanned my susceptibility to them and I started having fullblown panic attacks and mood swings as early as age 8. The constant fear instilled in me over eternal punishment and the concept of living for all eternity under the servitude of someone else used to drive me to the point of having to take heavy doses of medication just to keep calm. I watched one of your videos a few years ago when I was in college studying biology and related medical sciences and I started realising from your travels all over the world that religion as a whole may not be what I think it is. This led me to do much research and I now understand the true nature of the universe. It has been a very eye opening experience for me. I am now a confirmed athiest and can finally live a full and fullfilled anxiety free life devoid of fear. Thank You so much for everything you've done. I hope that everyone will eventually see the deluded fallacy of religion and come together to work toward the betterment of our race and reaching towards the stars.
Sincerely your bud,
