Dear Mr. Dawkins,

I would like to thank you for helping me get back to my pure infant self. It’s not easy to break away from what our families engrave in us since early childhood, but thanks to you and to many other great scientists like you, I have.

I am an Egyptian American mother of two, and an ex-Muslim. My husband and I recently abandoned religion and we have never been more at peace with ourselves. Islam touches every little detail of a Muslim’s daily life, but we gradually and smoothly drifted away from it untill we realized at one point that we’ve become Atheists. I think that once you decide to logically and scientifically evaluate your faith then Atheism is inevitable. There will come a time, I’m sure, when all religion will vanish and humanity will move on.

I would like to end my letter with another final thanks, and this one is for “The Magic of Reality”. It is the first book on our list once our little girls are old enough to read. 🙂

Wishing you the best of health and prosperity,

Iman Elsayed
