I’m not sure who reads these emails, but I will direct it to Richard Dawkins anyway.

I was raised in an atheist, open minded family. However, in recent years, I have flirted with the idea of religion. I am 18 years old. Before I read your incredible book, The God Delusion, I had already seen sense and returned to atheism. However, after reading it, I was much stronger, to the point of certainty in my beliefs that flying sky daddies do not exist. But your book, which is now my personal favourite (I am an avid reader) also made me realise that the Abrahamic religions in particular (but also all other religions) are horrific indoctrination.
I am now reading your latest book, The Greatest Show On Earth.

Mr.Dawkins, you have turned me into a campaigner for science and reason, and I thank you for that. I admire you very much, and Charles Darwin would agree with me, in my opinion, that you are a good man.

Thank you,
