Dear Richard,

Let me start by saying thank you for all that you have done for atheist around the world. There were too many questions through out my life that wouldn’t have been answered if you had not taken the time to do so. I was exposed to many different religions growing up, some very extreme. I never fit into any of their molds and never knew why. There were always ignorance and malice if you some one had “real” questions to ask. I never knew what it meant to be atheist and really didn’t approach the subject matter until recently. For many years I knew that I didn’t believe in the religious non-since, and that one day religion could be the down fall of human kind. The sole purpose of religion is to enslave the ignorant so others can have dominion of them. It truly angers me to see all those around the world suffer because of religious beliefs.

For the last ten years of my life I have wanted to write and speak out against religions, but was afraid of the back lashing and lack of information I bring to the table. Because of your writings and the efforts of so many other atheist; I can now hold my head high and challenge the ignorance that religion brings to humanity. My dream is to one day be half as inspirational and influential to others in the atheist community that you have been.
