Hello Mr. Dawkins,
I’m not sure if you will ever read this, or if I’m talking to a random person browsing the website.
I’m 16 years old on the East Coast of America, and I would like you to know how inspirational you are to me. I am a Non-Theist, and I follow the philosophical BASIC principles of the theravada Buddhist people, with meditation and having good moral values. Not the reincarnation blight.
I live in a small town that is labled as a “Christian” town.
The minority of reasonable non-theist people are just assumed to be irrational, cold hearted, and pessimistic.
Growing up in a Catholic home, it wasn’t easy seeing the truth like it is now.
In my said town it is assumed that you are Christian, and all the religious people walk around making declaritive statements, and talk to people like they should be religious.
It is a shame, and I wish for more people too listen to you, and see the truth.
One day society will, thanks to your efforts.
