I just finished reading The God Delusion, the first book I've read by Mr. Dawkins. I LOVE HIM . . . and his book!!
I've identified myself as a fundamentalist Christian all my life, because I didn't know I had a choice, but now I'm FREE! I always knew I didn't believe it, but I just didn't know what I could do about it. This book made me feel okay about what I've always believed, and I'm so thankful. I'm not quite “out of the closet” to my family and friends, but I'm working on it. (I'm from Arkansas, part of the Bible Belt – tears will be shed, prayers will be said, gossip will be exchanged!)
It is truly wonderful to be honest with myself.
