Dear Mr Dawkins,
I must thank you immensly for your work. I’m getting to the end of your fantastic book ‘The god delusion’ and couldn’t wait until the end to thank you.
I first got to know about you through Mr Brown’s book ‘tricks of the mind’. Having been raised quite alike him in an evangelic christian community, I related a lot to his story. So, I had to get hold of the book to which he is so elogious.
I gave up my parents (and my) beliefs sometime around my teenage years. Thinking more and more about my received teachings, I arrived to the simple conclusion that they just conflicted with common sense!
In the past, i’ve found myself cornered by my lack of knowledge, which gave the christian defending his beliefs automatic (perceived in his sense) victory!
Needless to say how nauseating this is. Your book is a gold mine of proof that i hope will put in doubt every religious believing person that crosses my way from now on.
I can’t thank you enough for giving me the words and answers i’ve lacked or been searching for all this time.
