Dear Professor Dawkins,
I am one of the millions of people around the world who have had the privlege of reading your books and watching your superb documentaries. While watching your documentaries I was utterly appalled with the maltreatment you received from the numerous priests and religious clerics you encountered. Their ignorance would have made the neanderthals shake their heads in dismay.
Millions of people around the world admire not only your superlative scientific aptitude but also your profound courage in championing what you believe to be true. You have succeeded where even Charles Darwin retreated from. You have grappled the horns of ignorance time and time again and come out the victor.
You are indeed a role model for all the 6.5 billion people living in our world today. If we had a few more great men such as you then this world would not be stagnating in the suffering that we see all around us. It is indeed a great privilege for an obscure nobody like myself to be your contemporary.
Even though this email is just a “drop in the ocean” of emails you must receive, I hope it might please you by a few degrees.
Your faithful student,
