Just wanted to send you a very big thank-you. For many 21 years I was a
de-facto christian, but I have always felt uneasy about my beliefs. Perhaps the seed of atheism was my viewing of a documentary on rational explanations for the Noah story at about 10 years of age. After reading the God Delusion two times through, I am firmly and happily “de-converted”. In fact, it only took reading your introduction, when something inside me (rationality? reason?) “popped”. The rest was just details. One thing I cannot stress enough is how difficult it will be to tell my family and church, and how much it will affect my social network. Despite this, I refuse to live a lie in order to maintain my life how it was.
