Dear Professor Dawkins
I would like to thank you for writing your book “the god delusion” for inspiring me to become open minded and question my religious beliefs. Years after becoming an atheist I was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder which is similar to schizophrenia except with a mood disorder. Yes my life has been a living hell with this disorder but I feel it could have been MUCH worse if it weren’t for my non-belief. I see schizophrenics claiming to speak to god or that they are god, and I have to say, when I am in the worst of the worst psychosis, I atleast have a bit of reality to hold on to knowing as much as I do about the universe and evolution, and the truth about a supposed afterlife. You’ve truly brought me *that* much closer to reality and I thank you for that.
