Professor Richard Dawkins
Dear Professor Dawkins,
Thank you, so much for inspiring me and lots of other people I know by writing such amazing books. I’m 14 years old and my Dad bought me your book called the “Magic of Reality” and I loved it. It really enlightened me about the ‘magic’ of the real world in which we live in.
My Dad and I have been listening to lots of the debates you’ve been participating in and most speeches you’ve made about atheism and the ‘God Delusion’. I’ve now become an atheist because of your work. If you hadn’t written the books that you have, I would probably not have become one and also I wouldn’t have learnt about the magic of our world.
The way you wrote ‘the Magic of Reality’ was brilliant for young people like me. I immersed myself in the writing and was fascinated by the things I discovered (e.g what the Sun really is and more about stars). You write in a way that is casual, informative ,humorous and educational. I have started to show my friends much more of your books and are really inspired by your great work.
I want to work in the biological industry of Science when I grow up. I want to be a marine biologist and i want to study the ocean and all the organisms which evolved into the magnificent creatures they are today. Part of the reason why I became so enthusiastic about Science in general was because of what you taught me.
Thank you for changing the lives of so many people like me. You are my inspiration
