Professor Dawkins,
I am an 18 year old and I have just started reading your book, “The God Delusion,” and all I can say is Wow. I was raised Catholic and grew up in a strong Catholic environment as a child. When I was young I accepted everything I was told about the Bible without question, as any child would. But as I got older and I began to take an interest in science and seeing how the world really worked, I began to ask questions about things I use to think were absolute fact. The story of Noah's ark for example. As a child I accepted it as fact because I was told to, but by using simple reasoning later in life I was able to see that the story made no sense when interpreted literally. In conclusion I would just like to say one last thing, I am now an Atheist and see the world in a whole new way now.

Sincerely,
Max
