Dear Richard

To me you are the superstar for science and reason. If only the world listened to and embraced scientists like they do Movie Stars and Musicians, but not in the stalkerish paparazzi way of course.

I first became aware of the negative impacts of religious beliefs about 2 years ago through Stephen Fry, then Christopher Hitchens, and then you (developing a bit of a rock star crush) when I saw you on the Australian program Q&A.

I love the clear and precise way you express your arguments and can’t understand the negativity that surrounds you in much of the media. I’m only 20 so I hope that someday I can express myself better and have more knowledge of science and religion to be able to help encourage skepticism and clear thinking.

Thank you,
