Dear Professor Dawkins,
I was not converted by "The God Delusion", but I was radicalized!
I have been privileged enough to enjoy 53 years of what Jonathan Miller once called "thoughtless disbelief". What a luxury it has been. For most of my life the belief or disbelief in God never really mattered.
All that changed with 9/11. Like you, I am starting to realize the value of what I have, and that it might be under threat.
Thanks for the wake- up call.
