For years I have sat on the fence, listening to arguments both for and against religious affiliation and at one point was leaning more towards the side of the church. I found that most of the people who were arguing against religion were crude and took on an almost bully type stance in the debates. Fortunately about a year ago I came across a youtube video of you talking about creationism and other religious aspects and was hooked. For days I watched interviews and debates, listened to clips and read many articles that you had been involved in. I was very impressed by your method of debate as well as your willingness to admit that there are still many things in the world that we cannot explain. I am now a fully committed Atheist and am slowly attempting to broaden the minds of many of my friends and introduce the notion of rationality to their lives. Thank you again for speaking against such a powerful and destructive sect of humanity and hopefully in our lifetimes we will see a shift towards a more rational and free world.
