Dear Richard,

I struggle to adequately and eloquently describe how much you have changed my life. “The God Delusion” is perhaps the most comprehensive and spectacular religious text to have ever been written. In fact, if I had the money and time, I would personally replace every single Bible in every single hotel room with a copy of “The God Delusion.” You are brilliant and fearless. Your book provides more scientific proof against any existence of organized religion than all religious texts combined provide proof for it. You painstakingly touch upon every single concept and ideology as if you were a pro-religious crusader and then flip them on their backs in a sort of inside-out reconnaissance. I wish for every single man, woman and child to read this book before making any decisions regarding their religious affiliation. “The God Delusion” should be required reading for every child in every school. It’s so unfortunate that this will never happen. I came across your book while writing and researching my own books on the subject and I would love to have your participation in any way possible. I am currently looking for the proper channels for this and have already interviewed some of your colleagues. In the meantime, thank you, thank you, thank you– like millions of people, I felt atheist “in my soul” but still had that shadow of doubt looming over me. After reading The God Delusion, I no longer live in fear or doubt. The closet door has been blown to pieces and I am free. Thank God. 🙂
