Dr. Richard Dawkins,

My name is Jeremy, and I'm 15 years old. Both of my parents are evangelical missionary Christians. I was baptized and became a Christian when I was age 10.

After I read your book The God Delusion a few weeks ago, I realized that the bible is an irrational stitching-together of various of old documents containing barbaric myths and fanciful legends, and FAR from “inerrant”. The only reason that I was baptized in the first place and became a Christian was because I was afraid of death (and hell) and felt pressured by my parents to become a Christian. But after I read The God Delusion I gave up my religion and childish fears about the afterlife and now I am an atheist.

Thank You so much for writing your great book and helping people like me give up their childish beliefs and wishful-thinking!

God Bless, (OOPS I FORGOT: I DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD! hahahahahaha)

Jeremy
