Dear Professor Dawkins,

I would like to thank you for your fantastic book 'The God Delusion'. Before I started reading, I was very much an agnostic, but as I made my way through the book, I was completely bowled over by the truth you were writing. You were thinking what I was thinking before I even knew it! I am now absolutely convinced of the irrationality of religion, the damage it can cause, and of the truth of the sound Darwinian arguments you put across in its place. Everyone should read this book, if only to encourage people to think more about the beliefs they hold. I hope very much to meet you one day (maybe at Oxford University, where I have a place to study Theology next year) to shake your hand and to thank you for finally dismissing some of the religious nonsense still left in my head from indoctrination into Christianity as a child. You have truely changed my life.
