Dear Professor Dawkins,
I want to thank you from all of my heart. I have been raised in a religious society, but in an atheistic family. I was not forced to be an ahteist, though the influence from outside turned out to be stronger. As I was getting older, my faith was becoming wan. So, in age of 15, I abandoned the possibility of the God existance. But all my friends could not accept that, my family did not get that seriously, and I needed someone’s approval.
While surfing on the net, I found the annotation to one of your books, ‘The God Delusion’, which is ‘Бог Как Иллюзия’ in Russian. So, you were the person, who helped me to get rid of the wrong idea. You opened my eyes to the New World.
How graceful and elegant the World without God is! The true beauty lies in its simplicity. Now, when I see a flower or a little bug, I found myself thinking ‘Oh, how that evolved?’. I do not cease admiring the magnificence of Nature. I am always exited by just being alive. Science… is the poetry of reality. I will be a scientist one day, exploring this wonderful World.
Thank you, Professor Dawkins, for showing me the genuine glory of the World we live in. Thank you.
P.S. I am sorry, if there are any grammar or spelling mistakes.
Sincerely yours,Diyana Ayupova
