Converts, Wed, Jan 30 2013 #(658)

Jan 30, 2013

I’ve never been a strict Christian, but books like The God Delusion and The Blind Watchmaker helped me take the step from complacency in a semi-religious background (my father is a Christian, though not outspoken, and my mother is a pacifist agnostic) to de facto atheism. I now have a much clearer outlook on life, and whilst it may not be as happy, and I may not fit in with society to the same extent, I would much rather, as your “only convert” says, take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

Thank you, Richard Dawkins. I might not be a multi-million selling author, but you have changed my life for what I believe is the better.

Yours sincerely,
Christopher Fraser
